"We pay for security systems – but getting too little in return"
"Aftonbladet's leader board is the independent social democrat."
"can you afford to get sick? Or get rid of the job?"
"the civil Servants' trade union umbrella organisation (TCO) – who this week had congress presented yesterday a report showing that the answer likely is no."
"TCO has calculated what the impact of a fictional middle-class family where the parents earn 35 000 and 25 000 a month – will be if they are hit by illness or unemployment."
"If the one who serves best becomes unemployed lost more than 12 000 dollars a month in disposable income. In sjukdomsfallet lose the family 10 000 sek."
"A principle which many still think applies is that you get 80 percent of their salary if they get the job or become ill."
"health insurance and the unemployment fund is linked to the so-called base amount, and then required an active decision to raise the ceiling, and thus allow the benefits comply with the general wage increases. And any such decision is taken not very often."
"the Ceiling for compensation in the unemployment insurance scheme is about 20 000 sek per month. It strikes you in if you earn 25 000 dollars or more. The ceiling for the benefit is approximately 23 700 dollars a month, and turned in at a monthly salary of about 31 000."
"To let be to raise the ceilings in the trygghetsförsäkringarna has created a demand for private insurance, not least among swedes with TCO-related professions. At the same time have the Swedish people, for years, paid for better sickness benefits, better pensions, and better a-cash without actually getting it."
"According to the law, to employers through social contributions in the employer's contribution finance trygghetsförsäkringar, health insurance and unemployment insurance. It is a part of our salary but it is paid to the collective insurance rather than directly to us. But when the politicians reduced the social charges, so instead raised the löneavgiftsdelen in the employer's contribution. It is a stealth tax that makes the employer's contribution is at the same level, year after year."
"Löneavgifterna not connected to any particular insurance and makes the money can go directly to the treasury instead of to the social security system. Under the government Reinfeldt made contributions to social security funds so that the state coffers were reinforced by 300 billion. At the same time the deteriorated security systems, and the surpluses were used to finance Anders Borg's big tax cuts."
"Even since the change of government in 2014, it has continued and Magdalena Andersson has also rubbed hands to the revenues of social security funds delivered. Folksam's välfärdsanalytiker Håkan Svärdman have in a calculation of the ETC has shown that the surplus during the years between 2015 and 2017, landed at sek 79 billion."
"– It has become a way to covertly taxing commitments that would otherwise have been funded through spending cuts or higher taxes, have Svärdman said."
"thus, We have funded our tax cuts by undermining security systems."
"Feel the wind, Svensson."
