Minister: New subsidised jobs make-or-break for Sweden

4:45 min

The government is in discussions with unions and employers over a new type of low-wage, subsidised job aimed at bringing new arrivals into the labour market. Employment minister Ylva Johansson tells Radio Sweden the unions' willingness to back the reform is unique.

"This has been a big step, especially for the unions, and I think they are brave and I hope it's going to be a huge reform,"  Johansson said in an interview with Radio Sweden during a visit to Lund in December.
