- A shortage of labour in the north of Sweden has led the government to ask the Public Employment Agency to look into how more of those unemployed in other parts of the country could be convinced to move to where the jobs are.
- ”We need to allow a process where things need to sink in, you might need to try things before you make the final decision,” says Ida Rönnblom at the agency’s office in Skellefteå.
- More money set aside for people who need to travel to job interviews and support to do internships in others parts of the country, could be part of the solution, according to Rönnblom.
