"the Left party wants to introduce a åldersfaktor in the health insurance system, so that the requirement to transition to other occupations to be removed when completing 61 years."
"– A cream for nursing assistants and construction workers, " says party leader Jonas Sjöstedt."
"If the proposal is implemented, would the over 61 years old who are not able to continue in their profession avoid having to take out a pension early. The person shall, within the health insurance, only be tested against the job within the career you already have."
" We have a situation where the retirement age should be raised gradually upward. At the same time, we know that, already today, about 15 percent do not have the energy to work until retirement age, " says Jonas Sjöstedt, at a press conference in Gothenburg."
"– If you are ill, so that you can not work, then you should get the sickness benefit. It is very difficult to get it today. Even the older ones should be tested against the entire labour market. But it is not so easy for a jaded nurse, " says Jonas Sjöstedt."
"the economic impact of The not be able to work to the normal retirement age is large. In many cases, the afflicted had to take out the pension in advance."
"– Then the pension will be very low, both to pliktåldern and afterwards, points out Jonas Sjöstedt."
"the left party's proposal aims primarily to help people who have worn out in the heavy occupations. Interested persons should be able to get sickness benefit until the age of 67."
"Of approximately 15 per cent of each year the exploits of the reform, would cost, according to the Left party to be about 300 million for each."
"– Fully developed would be the annual cost to do this to be sek 2.1 billion, " says Jonas Sjöstedt."
"V-the leader must later in the afternoon to speak at the party's meeting at the Gustaf Adolf square in Gothenburg."
