Working Past 61 Should be Easier

Sweden’s Minister for the Elderly, Maria Larsson, says that old people should have more rights to a flexible work life.

Writing in broadsheet Dagens Nyheter on Monday she presents a proposal from her party, the Christian Democrats.

They are one of the smaller parties in the governing centre-right coalition.

They says that the right to work should be extended from the age of 67, to 72. And that from 61 people should have the right to work part time.

This conflicts with the proposal by the Liberals, also a coalition party, to completely abolish the pension age, but goes with the government’s general plan to get people working past the traditional retirement age.
