It is very true. I have lived in smaller towns like Arvidsjaur, Piteå and Skellefteå. They are the pits if you are an outsider. As a tourist you are welcomed, they want your money. Whatever you do DONT move there !!! Then you are after their jobs and immediately a lesser being. Even Bill, Richard and Obama would have a problem getting a paid job in these towns in the north ! They would use them just for marketing and praise them "för en bra insats" (good work) without any pay. And blame it on lack of work vacancies. However most swedish kids and their families seem to have too much work and lots of stress. Now your getting the picture..... It is their way to say that you are not welcome. So after my 12 years in Northern Sweden DONT BOTHER.
The biggest joke is most have been abroad to your country and "worked" and then go home again.
Talk about DOUBLE MORALS !!! That is the Swedish all over !
Yours- En erfaren expat som bo i Sverige !
