The Industrious Refugee: 0.3% Employed In Sweden
Only a fraction of the many asylum seekers who came to Sweden last year have got jobs, new figures show.
Only a microscopic part of the 162,000 refugees who last year sought asylum in Sweden have so far got jobs. In fact only 494 of the thousands of asylum seekers in the labor market, writes SVT. This corresponds to 0.3 per cent of all asylum seekers that came last year.
A valid ID is all that is requires, according to the television channel, for a person who has come to Sweden to be able to work while he is waiting to get his asylum application processed.
