The Swedish Employment Service has warned that migrant unemployment rates are set to dramatically increase to the worst levels since the 1990s in a new report. A report last month revealed that up to 90% of Muslim asylum seekers who arrived since the 2015 migrant crisis were unemployed.
Breitbart The agency stated that as the trend of overall unemployment in Sweden continues to grow, structural unemployment will increase and that migrants will be especially likely to be jobless, Sydsvenskan reports.
“The Employment Service believes that those born abroad with the highest level of upper secondary education will suffer a sharp rise in unemployment and long-term unemployment in the coming years,” the agency said. “The group that is most severely affected is foreign-born Muslim women who do not have upper secondary education,” it added. (Nor do they have any desire to work)
Muslim migrant unemployment rates have been far higher than rates for native Swedes rates for years, with a 2018 report revealing that while native unemployment was just 3.6 per cent that year the migrant rate was 19.9 per cent.
Muslim migrants also make up the majority of those who sign up with the Employment Service, according to another 2018 report, which noted that six in ten people registered with the agency are born overseas.
The Employment Service has several programmes designed to get Muslim migrants into work including the use of government-subsidized jobs — and figures released in early February showed that just 6.1 per cent of newly-arrived migrants were able to find work not subsidized by the government after 90 days in an Employment Service program.
In total, just 31 per cent of migrants in the program were able to get any sort of job at all.

Europe Reloaded With gang crime soaring in Sweden, the country’s Prime Minister still refuses to blame immigration for the problem. The statistics prove him wrong, but in Sweden, social justice is more important than actual justice.
Loathe as Swedish Prime Minister Lofven was to admit it, the link between migrants and crime is not just the stuff of right-wing fantasy. A 2017 investigation by newspaper Dagens Nyheter found that migrants were behind 90 percent of shootings in Sweden. The majority of shooting perpetrators, the report found, were men of Middle Eastern or North African origin.
All in all, murder and manslaughter more than doubled between 2008 and 2018, according to government statistics.
Grenade attacks too seem to be an imported phenomenon. Sweden saw a handful at most of explosive devices detonated every year until 2016, when 39 hand grenades were used in attacks. Of course, 2015 was the year that Sweden welcomed in more than 160,000 migrants and asylum seekers, more per capita than any other European country.
But correlation does not equal causation. The fact that grenade attacks increased nearly fortyfold at the same time that Sweden was flooded with new arrivals could just be a coincidence. However, if the true cause is indeed unemployment, as Lofven suggests, then the problem is again linked with immigration.
Amid the denialism of Lofven’s government – which has launched a concerted effort to downplay the problem internationally – police in Sweden have concocted some hare-brained schemes to tackle the violence. Less than a week after a 15-year-old boy was shot dead in Malmo, police invited gang leaders to a sit-down with legal professionals and relatives of crime victims. . Pizza was served, and the cops presumably asked the criminals politely to stop murdering each other.
Sweden’s own in-house PR shop, Sweden.se, is meanwhile luring more migrants north with Arabic-language advertisements promising free health and dental care, sizable children’s allowance payments and the world’s longest paid parental leave – as if the newcomers ever wanted to find a job in the first place.
