Isn’t immigration great? Just ask the citizens of Switzerland who now have the highest rate of rape in Europe and will soon have to retire later so they can pay for the generous benefits paid to Muslim refugees. The choice came down to raising taxes or not letting people retire at 65. The retirees got bit. But, hey, if the Swiss don’t mind, it’s no skin off my nose. They can continue to vote the same people into office and remain second class citizens in their own country. Just don’t try that here, although you can bet your last dollar the elites would do just that if given a chance.
The increasing costs of population growth in Sweden, drivenalmost entirely mass migration, have forced the government to seriously consider raising the national retirement age to pay for the additional costs.
Swedish Socialist party Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson announced that the retirement age would likely be raised in the near future in order to offset increased welfare costs, Swedish newspaper Expressen reports.
“Looking at those who start working at 30, there should be opportunities to work longer than 65,” Andersson said.
How do you feel about this? Are you willing to work three years longer, not for your children and not for your grandchildren but for illegal aliens? I know what my answer is. But if the Swiss don’t mind having their women sexually asssaulted, I don’t see how this will move the needle.
While migrants are increasing the cost of the Swedish welfare state in terms of added infrastructure and cost for services, many are unemployed and directly on welfare. A recent report showed that while the native Swedish unemployment rate was around 3.9 percent, it stood at 21.8 percent for Swedish residents from foreign backgrounds.
A 2016 report claimed that the one-year cost of the migrant crisis for the Swedish taxpayer could amount to as much as 600 billion Swedish Kronor (£48.3 billion), enough to pay for the national armed forces for the next 14 years. Stockholm University associate professor Jan Tullberg made the calculations based on welfare and housing costs, education costs and other factors.
Let Europe do as they will, it is their right but they don’t dictate to us.
