Shopping malls and Ryszard Petru want trade freedom on Sundays – said Agnieszka Dziemianowicz-Bąk, Minister of Family, Labor and Social Policy, as a guest of “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24. This is the answer to the question about today's debate in the Sejm on the Poland 2050 project regarding changes to the ban trading on Sundays. The minister also commented on the government's proposal regarding increases in the budget and minimum wage for 2025.

Today, the Sejm held a debate on the Poland 2050 project. It provides for two shopping Sundays a month. For work on Sunday, the employee would be entitled to double remuneration, and the employer would be obliged to designate the employee a day off, from 6 days before to 6 days after the working day on Sunday.

– We, as the Left, would like Fridays off, instead of commercial Sundays, said Minister Dziemianowicz-Bąk in “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24.

– We do not want to force trade workers to go to work instead of spending Sundays with their families – said Minister Dziemianowicz-Bąk. She added that this change would primarily affect women, because 70 percent of retail workers, e.g. cashiers, are mainly women.

The minister emphasized that it is difficult to find support for the project because “neither employees, nor trade unions, nor traders themselves want to lift the trade ban.” – Shopping malls and Ryszard Petru want this – said the minister.

Moreover, she emphasized that people currently working on Sundays and holidays are not always well remunerated. – Perhaps these regulations need to be tightened – said the minist.
