Priority on jobs

An Ipsos/DI survey among 2,300 senior executives of companies with yearly sales of over SKr 10 million shows that 60% consider investments in job creation should be the top priority in the upcoming autumn budget bill, to be presented on Monday.
There is little confidence among business leaders in the government’s budget proposals so far, says Günther Mårder, head of the Swedish Association of Business Owners (Företagarna).
School education and integration list as the second and third most important areas to invest in, shows the survey, while environment and the climate are given lower priority among these business leaders.
Moreover, there are major differences between how female and male business executives prioritise jobs and defence, comments DI.
