New budget ignores unemployment

The spring budget lacks a clear strategy on how to tackle unemployment according to the Social Democrats spokesman on the economy Tommy Waidelich.

“These are positive figures for the Swedish economy, but I’m not seeing any measures to solve the problem we have with hundreds of thousands of unemployed Swedes. At the same time companies have problems recruiting staff,” he told Swedish Radio News.

Waidelich thinks that the government should spend more on education, especially focusing on education for those who are looking for a job but don’t have the education and experience demanded by the companies.

The proposed tax cuts, he adds, will not solve any of these issues, he added.
