Sweden / Roughly 70 percent of the jobs created since 2006 went to immigrants

Roughly 70 percent of the more than 200,000 jobs created in Sweden since 2006 have gone to residents born abroad, new statistics show.

Since 2006, when the current centre-right government took power, around 230,000 new jobs have been created in Sweden, according to figures from Statistics Sweden (SCB).

The figures reveal further that 160,000 of the newly created jobs have gone to people born outside of Sweden.

Speaking with Sveriges Radio (SR) about the statistics, Integration Minister Erik Ullenhag added that at 100,000 of the new jobs went to workers born outside of Europe.

“We’ve had a very positive development when it comes to immigrants in the Swedish labour market in that we’ve never had so many people that were born other counties that actually go to work,” he told the broadcaster.
