Labor Market

1 out of 6 Gets Employed

Three years after the introduction of the so-called “New Start Jobs”, one out of six formerly long-term unemployed people have a permanent employment, a study by the state employment service shows. The brunt of those taking part in the program were unemployed again after a while.

Speaking to Swedish Radio news, Minister for Employment Sven Otto Littorin called the figures an encouraging development. “It is clear that this group of unemployed needs more efforts to get back into work”, Littorin added. The “New Start Jobs” were introduced in 2007 as a means to curb what the government called passiveness at the labor market. Companies that employ a former long-term unemployed do not have to pay social insurance costs during the first year.
