Borg proposes short-term jobs for the young

Finance Minister Anders Borg

The Swedish Minister for Finance, Anders Borg, says that unions and employers should work together to create short-term jobs at lower wages, to allow young people to get a start in the world of work.

But it seems as though Sweden will be keeping the first-in-last-out employment law, as Borg's Moderate party say that they do not agree with their coalition partners' plans to scrap this rule.

Anders Borg says to Swedish Radio News that Germany, Austria and the Netherlands already have a system where workers' hours can be reduced in the event of a crisis in order to make room for more employees. And he adds that the government could reduce taxes for employers, or change the unemployment benefit rules, in order to help set up this kind of short-term job system.
