Reihan Salam reported yesterday on National Review Online that Sweden has passed the United States in hours worked per working age adults. Let that sink in for a moment: Swedish workersliving in the enlightened social democratic paradise according to the American leftare working harder than Americans. The figures Reihan cites are rather startling:
"The only reason the welfare state remains solvent is that an astonishing 85 percent of working-age native Swedes work and pay taxes, far above the European average of 70 percent."
see the story a couple of posts down about how welfare in Mass. pays better than working. That’s why....
Swedes? Pardon me while I have a blonde moment....
I think something like 70% of all the inmates in Sweden are “immigrants”, which is code, more or less, for young male Muslims from Somalia and the middle-east.
Good one! :o)
Oh, just try to introduce that here! What fun!
That’s because they are all busy making movie trailers...
Sweden also leads the world in “make work.”
