Elżbieta Rafalska said that the number of jobless people had fallen to below 1 million.

"We’ve waited a long time for this. The level of registered unemployment fell to 969,000 people at the end of June,” Rafalska said. The last time unemployment in Poland stood at that level was in October 1990, she added.

Rafalska said that in 2003 Poland had 3.34 million unemployed.

Joblessness this May dropped to 6.1 percent from 6.3 percent in April, according to the country’s Central Statistical Office.
