Posted July 15, 2018 10:23:46 The Globe and Mail has the latest from Finland on its latest health insurance news.
With unemployment in Finland at around 9.5 per cent, and the country still struggling to recover from a record-breaking economic meltdown, the number of unemployed workers has been growing at an alarming rate.
But, according to the Finns, the trend is being reversed in the past few years, with a large proportion of the population now employed.
While the labour force is not increasing as quickly as it used to, it is also shrinking as people are forced out of the workforce, the Finn government recently announced.
According to the latest census, Finland is now home to more than one million people who have been unemployed for more than two months, while the number has risen to about one million.
While it is difficult to accurately estimate how many Finns are out of work, there is no doubt that they have seen a significant rise in unemployment over the past year, according, as the Finnish government recently revealed.
The Finnish government is now considering a new program to help people get back into the workforce.
“As the population ages, many people lose their jobs, but some of them are still in employment,” said Kristi Aaltonen, director of the Health Service of Finland.
“For some of these people, the labour market has changed and they want to re-enter the labour markets.
That’s the first step towards a solution, but we have to think about how to adapt to that,” she added.
In the meantime, some Finns may have to find other work.
A recent study found that the percentage of people unemployed in Finland dropped from 29 per cent in 2019 to 22 per cent last year.
That was a significant drop from the high of around 40 per cent reported in 2019.
“The labour market is not the same anymore, the job market is changing,” said AalTONEN.
“We can’t afford to keep this pace of job creation in the longer term.
The longer the economy continues to expand, the more people are going to lose their job.”
If you or anyone you know needs help:The Finnish government announced a new strategy for the country in the face of the growing unemployment crisis.
It is called “Energiewende” (energy policy for the 21st century), and is designed to increase employment and wages while cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
The government will work to achieve a reduction of greenhouse gas pollution of 80 per cent below 1990 levels by 2025, and will create new green energy projects that will reduce CO2 emissions by 20 per cent by 2020.
But the plan is not just focused on renewable energy and energy efficiency, as it also includes the implementation of policies such as childcare provision, childcare subsidies and childcare and child care assistance, which will help to create jobs and boost economic growth.
In 2018, the Finnish economy experienced a sharp contraction as a result of the global financial crisis.
But as the economy has rebounded, it has started to recover, and unemployment is now down to around 10 per cent.
Unemployment in Finland is expected to decrease again in 2019, when the government hopes to see unemployment fall further to 6 per cent or lower.
