Swedish workers dent Norwegians' job prospects

Published torsdag 26 juli 2012 kl 18.35

Swedish youth have flooded Norway's labour market for years and now researchers there say it makes finding a job harder for many young Norwegians.

A research project financed by the Norwegian Labour Ministry looked specifically at job seekers between the ages of 17 and 18, reports the daily Aftenposten.

As the number of Swedes in Norway has increased, the likelihood of native young people finding work has gone down, the report concludes.

"If this can be explained by Norwegian young people becoming more picky, or by saying that Swedes take jobs from Norwegians, we can't tell," says researcher Camilla Sundt.

A one percent increase in Swedes looking for jobs there sees a half percentage point affect on Norwegians' chances of finding work, the report found.
