On Wednesday, the news came that the employment service is laying off of 4,500 employees on termination of employment. The reason is the greatly reduced allocation in the budgetreservation made by the Moderates and the Christian democrats and supported by The sweden democrats. The budget was voted through in parliament in december.
the parties touched upon that the employment service is in need of reform. But prime minister Stefan Löfven is now very critical of the opposition, which according to him was the change too casually.
– this change was made on a servettskiss. With one blow, carried away the money. It is Ulf Kristersson who is ultimately responsible, and the three parties who voted for this budget is allowed to stand there in the corner, " says Löfven during a press conference after the partiledardebatten in the parliament.
at the same time he does not want to promise that his government will rescue the executing employees.
" One must remember that the space to make changes in a vårändringsbudget is very limited. We say that you may need to reform the public employment service, but you do it not on a servettskiss. In Sweden we do so that we are planning and thinking about how we are going to make such a change, says Stefan Löfven.Video: during Wednesday's press conference. Photo: Magnus Hallgren

Jan Björklund will be with and negotiate vårändringsbudgeten, reports TT.
– the public employment service has received a huge amount of criticism on good grounds that it is inefficient and there is a lot of money that goes to the various programmes that have been ineffective. So my assessment is that it is possible to make big improvements in efficiency at the public employment service, " says party leader Jan Björklund to the news agency.
