The charge that Polish Jews are discriminated against in the service of the Polish postal administration was made by Deputy Ciolkasz, member of the Polish Socialist Party (PPS) at yesterday’s session of the Budget Commission.
The charge was substantiated in a statement made by the Jewish Deputy Rosmarin. He pointed out that in the Warsaw Jewish quarter, Nalewki, where there were Jewish mail carriers even during the Czaristic regime, the number of Jewish postal employees is negligible.
The Postal Minister Miedzinski, in reply, declared that his department does not discriminate against Jewish employees. It is true that applicants for employment must state their race and religion, but the fact of the matter is that Jewish applicants are reluctant to accept the positions of post carriers because of the difficult work and low wages.
