ABSTRACT
Unemployment and consequently poverty and marginalisation lead to constraining activities in various spheres of life concerning both family and functioning within its units. The most serious consequence of unemployment for family is deterioration of its financial situation. Insufficient funds for satisfying basic needs and realisation of family’s tasks deprive adults and their children of educational and occupational aspirations, lower the standard of housing, protection of the health, limit options of fulfilling pedagogical assignment and participating in cultural life. The result of it is also specific discrimination and “pushing out” of social environment; it is a kind of automarginalisation. The poor families’ lives is characterised by the sense of uncertainty and lack of stabilization. If fight against unemployment didn’t become the priority of the Polish state, in the future it might occur that many social groups wouldn’t be able to function as the rightful citizens of our country.
