Electrolux Lays off 3.000 World-Wide
More redundancies are being announced on the already troubled Swedish labor market.
This time, the household appliance giant Electrolux says it will dismiss another 3,000 persons in its global network in the next year or so – and then even more personnel when more production is moved to low-salary countries.
It’s not yet known how many of the redundancies will be in Sweden.
500 employees at an Eletrolux plant in Mariestad to the west of Stockholm have already been given a month off with pay - because of the large number of unsold appliances stacking up at the plant.
