A-kassa: The Swedish secret no one tells you
Foreigners face a unique set of hurdles in the Swedish job market, but few understand how unemployment insurance can help. One UK native tells The Local how Akademikernas a-kassa made his working live in Sweden easier.
UK-born Richard Wright has a common tale – boy meets girl. The girl just happened to be Swedish.
“I met Anna and the rest is history,” Wright tells The Local. “I’ve been here fifteen years now, and we have three kids and a house.”
But his history isn’t without its hiccups.
