The proposal has employers paying up to 8,400 kronor per month in salary and the government kicking in up to 9,870 kronor per month. In total, after taxes, that leaves a worker in an "entry job" with a salary of 15,600 kronor per month.
The idea is to find work for some 10,000 immigrants and long-term unemployed people in Sweden. But the plan has taken some time. Some unions were critical of the lower salaries and some opposition politicians think the salary subsidies will cost the government too much.
The plan may still take some time before it becomes a reality. The government says such "entry jobs" may begin hiring in the second half of 2019.
