    Of the less than 500 jobs, I wonder how many are translators?

    More made up statistics from the elites who don't want you to know how many people's jobs they are taking or how much they are driving down their wages

    Funny trolling. However, most Swedes would probably rather they did find a job, else they are just a drain on public finances.

    TBF that could just be the people who are working on the straight and level.

    The great benefit to migrant labour is the working off the books for pittance for unscrupulous employers.

    So while the true employment figures may be much higher, it's still up for debate if that's any better.

    Wether they're refusing to find work though or employers are refusing to hire them, it's a disturbing statistic.

    Precisely. Not to mention the effect this has on wages.

    A large number are almost certainly working illegally, or in crime, yes

    No, he's right. You're thinking of Eastern Europeans. The position is that EU migrants drive down wages of the native workers etc. Nobody said that the refugees will. The only people who suggested that this lot will get jobs are you lot lol.

    I've noticed quite a lot of SJWs making this mistake (conflating these people with the refugees) recently since that meme came out. Perhaps you think of all immigrants are the same but not everybody else does. It's always amusing to see SJWs come in with good intentions to lambast somebody who doesn't agree with them and then just betray their own prejudices. lol If I had a penny........
