Sweden: Muslim migrant joblessness at nearly 20%, government calls for even more Muslim migrants

While Swedish unemployment figures have seen a slight decline on average, there still remains a massive discrepancy between the unemployment rate of native Swedes and those born overseas.

The new figures, released by the Swedish Public Employment Service, show that unemployment across the country has gone down from 7.3 percent last year to 6.9 percent.

For native Swedes the unemployment rate has declined from 3.9 to 3.6 percent, which if taken alone would give native Swedes one of the lowest unemployment rates in the European Union, tied with Hungary and only being beaten by Germany and the Czech Republic according to Eurostat figures from June of this year.

While the foreign-born unemployment rate has seen a slight decline as well, it remains much higher than the native Swedish rate at 19.9 percent, down from 21.8 percent in 2017. When compared to other European Union countries, only Greece has such a high rate with 20.2

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
