1:45 min
  • The Moderate Party conference kicks off today in Helsingborg, one of the issues up for debate is labour immigration.
  • One proposal is to raise the minimum pay allowed for people to get a work permit and move to Sweden.
  • The centre-right party wants employers to have to offer at least 32,400 kronor a month in order for someone to qualify for a work permit, but the youth wing of the party says this proposal is too steep, and proposes 25,000 kronor instead.
