country with one main strategy – to floor the government’s jobs policy.
It looks like it is working based on the crowd he is pulling.
in front of a large audience in Gothenburg slammed the government for
failing to combat what they described as the run away youth
unemployment in Sweden and failure to protect the loos of jobs during
the financial crisis in 2008 .
its mayday as party leader speaking to between 10,000 and 15,000
listeners at Götaplatsen in an almost summer warm Gothenburg. The bulk
of the speech was devoted to jobs and Löfven called youth unemployment
a huge failure for the government.
"We believe in
our youth and we will make it possible for every boy and girl to
believe in their future. Youth unemployment is not a sign that
something is wrong with the young people, it shows that government
policy is wrong, "said Löfven.
attacked the government for having "willfully” allowed tens of
thousands of jobs to be lost during the financial crisis. He referred
to the worker’s Union, Metall which in 2008 vainly courted the
government to get into a social support so that companies could retain
surplus employees on short-term work such as in Germany.
Democrats have since last fall made a proposal to increase the ceiling
for unemployment benefits to Skr910 per day for the time being,
important new news was that if elected to be the country’s next Prime
Minister, Löfven will create an innovation policy council - made up of
ministers, scientists, industry and trade representatives. They shall
have as their task to develop and continually update innovation
strategy for the government. Similar advice has been tried in other
countries and also being proposed in Sweden.
"We live in an
international competition and that means that conditions are changing
almost from day to day. That's why this dialogue with industry is so
important, "says Löfven.
Democrats organized their first talk meetings around the country under
the slogan "Knowledge and work builds Sweden." The economic political
spokesperson Magdalena Andersson promised in her speech in Landskrona
that the Social Democrats will create more jobs and grow businesses in
Sweden, but could not give details.
