Create mini-jobs for refugees in Sweden

Sweden took in more refugees per capita than any other EU country last year. The German model of mini-jobs would be a good way to provide these often underqualified workers with employment, the liberal daily Göteborgs-Posten believes: "One possibility would be to introduce mini-jobs that you can do without losing benefits. That way the incentive to work wouldn't be curbed because it means losing out on benefits. State support payments could be reduced as soon as the employee gets a job that is sufficiently well paid. Would mini-jobs also work in Sweden? How good is the German model in comparison with other alternatives? The best thing would be for the government to follow the recommendation of the Fiscal Policy Council and set up a crisis commission. It should ascertain how integration can be improved and a low-wage sector created. Sweden cannot afford to have a growing number of people remain outside the workforce."

Sweden's teachers should stick to teaching

The new budget put forward by the Swedish government promises more funding for the country's schools in a bid to improve their results in Pisa tests. Among other things the budget includes pay rises for teachers. A look at the French model would also help, the liberal daily Göteborgs-Posten believes: "French teachers don't have to spend their time caring for their students' well-being and social development, or answering emails and text messages from bothersome parents. Because there all that is done by special teams, whose job it is to address the students' problems and deal with things like bullying, absences and contact with parents. ... There is no single reason for the Swedish pupils' pitiful results. Nevertheless it's clear that teaching quality suffers when teachers are so overloaded with other tasks that they hardly have time to prepare their classes."
