Moderates horrified by proposal

In a package of measures designed to curb the rising number of sick listings in Sweden, the government has proposed lowering the age limit for ill-health retirement from 30 to 19. Johan Forsell, the Moderates’ spokesperson on social insurance, is horrified by the proposal, saying it won’t put more people into work, or make them healthier.
There will always be those who are too ill to work, but it can never be a good thing to tell a 19 year old that they will be retired for life, he adds.
