Sweden -Report on temporary jobs -February 17, 2013

New figures published by the Public Employment Service show that 19,000 temporary jobs disappeared from the labour market in 2012. More than half of those in work aged 15-24 do so under temporary contracts. The office sees the figures as an indication that unemployment continues to hit young workers the hardest. Youth unemployment is high and also disproportionately higher even prior to the 2008-2010 crisis.
