Poor single-parent families and teachers are two of the groups that finance minister Anders Borg vowed to help when he spoke during a conference with his fellow conservative Moderates on Friday.

Borg suggested that the welfare system might need to change so that unemployed single parents have more of an incentive to go back to work. He believes this could help eliminate child poverty in Sweden and wants to direct some of this fall's budget to addressing the situation for these families.

He also said he wants to raise salaries for teachers. "We've said we want to reward good teachers, and this is an important priority," he said to the enthusiastic crowd in the western city of Karlstad.
