The minimum retirement age will be raised to 64 years and the Party has long warned that it will hit those who had strenuous occupations, not least women in the health and social care. The effect on them is often that they have begin to chip away at the pension early, with the result that the entire old age may live hard up.
this V remedy by a proposal that the party leader Jonas Sjöstedt launched in Gothenburg on Wednesday, shortly before he joined the left party 1 may-train.
" We think we have found the solution. We want to have a cream for nurses, the construction crew and others who worked so that the body can't take it anymore, " says Jonas Sjöstedt.
the age of 61 years will no longer be forced to be tested against the entire labour market if you are no longer able to work to remain within their profession. Instead of now being forced to take out a pension, should such a person be entitled to sickness benefit until the age of 67.
– It is perhaps unrealistic to the worn byggjobbaren or undersköterskan shall be tested against the entire labour market. It is where we experience that many will get caught, you have to hold out in the last few years if you don't have the energy. When we open this valve which would make that a much more reasonable pension as they are, " says Jonas Sjöstedt.
According to Swedish estimates, the proposal fully developed cost of sek 2.1 billion per year. Jonas Sjöstedt, compare that with the abolition of värnskatten on high incomes, which costs the treasury about 6 billion annually.
the Problem for Jonas Sjöstedt is that his party is not among the six political parties included in the pensionsgruppen that govern how the pension scheme to be developed. This is because V has not accepted the foundations of the current pension system.
– We would be happy to be with and to negotiate the pensions. But this is a proposal that can be made in addition to the negotiations in pensionsgruppen. I think there are great opportunities, many in the trade union movement sees this problem, " says Jonas Sjöstedt.
