Saco warns of funding crisis

Sweden’s welfare sector faces a massive funding crisis, writes Robert Boije, head of social policy issues at the Swedish Confederation of Professional Associations (Saco). He criticises the political blocs over their inability to explain to the voters how they intend to solve the looming crisis with the tax system.

“It would not be out of place in the upcoming autumn budget proposals to provide concrete information on how the funding crisis will be solved,” writes Boije.
