The Best Educated Taxi Drivers In The World

Published tisdag 10 februari 2009 kl 15.05

Ask many taxi drivers with foreign roots in Stockholm or Gothenburg what their educational training is and you may very well be told of years of university education, all wasted when they moved to Sweden.

And unfortunately, they aren’t alone, recent immigrants to Sweden are often found doing the most poorly paid work. But Swedish unions say that, in fact, refugees and other immigrants tend to be more educated than the average schooling - but that all this knowledge and skills are being wasted by employers who are too timid to employ foreigners, and by an education system that fails to properly recognise foreign qualifications or prepare academically trained immigrants for high level work in Sweden.
