No More Money For Local Councils

Published torsdag 19 mars 2009 kl 12.30
Is the health care system really falling short?

Sweden’s local councils and country councils can’t expect more cash in the upcoming Spring Budget, according to sources within the government. Despite calls from the opposition to give more money to local government, which are in charge of health care, schools, and welfare, representatives from the government have told daily Svenska Dagbladet that the councils have already been given more money this year.

Critics say that falling tax revenues could mean that up to 15 000 jobs will have to go in the public sector this year, but the government says that the councils are already paying less in employer taxes on their workers, meaning they are saving some money there.
