There is a crisis
Volvo has layed off 3000 people due to diminshed sales in the wake of the financial crisis.
Can it be that they went on the SUV trend to late, and have not a reasonably cheap mid or mini class car in production!
Anyway- now our government has descided to pump in 1.5 billions to Arbetsförmedlingen (a state employment agency) to counter the effects of the lay- offs.
Why not give every lay-off half a miljon instead. They could start their own companies, go live in Thailand or what ever. Then we would not need the beurocrasy, the governmental agencys and the government itself to meddle in these peoples lifes with work- shops and "work finding courses".
And as ever. It's MY money they are giving away!
I'm a net tax payer!
If I really have to give away people money that are not needed, then I would rather give it to them myself instead of being filtered through the government and governmental agencys.
It's like- well tax me if you have to. But give the money directly to the poor bastards that need them to provide for themselves and their familys.
I know. Half a miljon is not much in this day and age, but atleast I could take one heck of an vacation while pondering over what I would do next...
Here is another idea:
Why not give the 1.5 biljons to Volvo?
Nah! Bad idea. the money would probably fume off faster than frost on a wolfs testikles.
