The unemployment rate are still considerably higher among the young people than within the rest of the population in Sweden. The youth are more sensitive too the economic cycles than the the rest of the population. This can be shove by for example that after every recession or crises a increasing number of youth which continues to be unemployed.
In Sweden there is a big difference between the unemployment within the youth and the older people. This big difference makes Sweden unique in EU contexts.
The reason for the high youth unemployment in Sweden in a very discussed subject. There are a lot of questions on why the youth unemployment is so much higher than for the rest of the population and ages. The current labor law in Sweden with for instance the rule that says “last in, first out” in employment contexts does not make it easier for the young people to get in to the labour market during difficult times.
An other different aspect is that the step in to the labour market seems to bee to big. The discussion here is that the collaboration between school and the labour market or connections with companies does not work as good as it should or could do.
