Greens launch proposal to fight child poverty
The Green party has announced ten proposals to fight child poverty, which is on the rise in Sweden.
Among the proposals are a grant for children in need of glasses, the right to a computer for families on welfare support and increased child support, news agency TT reports.
"Children should not be caught in this political squabble. All parties should give this initiative broad support," said Gustav Fridolin, the Greens' spokesperson, at a press conference.
The Greens also propose raising the minimum level of parental insurance and eliminating loopholes that allow schools to levy extra fees.
