Formation, which sent by these companies in German families to care for there assistance – or elderly persons, are systematically ripped off. The German families have to pay the 2,000 euro for the round the clock support of their relatives. The agencies pay the Polish forces of care just a gross wage of 250 euros. With tax free expenses, the support force receives approximately 750 euro a month, social security contributions and pension fund are paid only on the 250 euro gross.
