Sweden Forced to Raise Retirement Age To Pay For Mass Immigration

The increasing costs of population growth in Sweden, driven almost 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.

The minister made her remarks following an economic report from the Local Authorities and County Council (SKL) released earlier this week. The report claimed that the welfare state would grow faster than revenue obtained through taxation due to the dramatic rise of Sweden’s population.

What do they do before they are 30? Go to college?

If the bleeding-heart liberals have their way, we will have to do this here, as well.

Only partially right, Junior. Mostly the WWII generation that did most of the spending, but the liberal boomers that have been running the country for most of the past 10 years did do some damage.

Liberal Democrats.

How did you vote, Junior? Or are you old enough yet?

2:51 my guess is they picked 30 as an arbitrary number where people find the career they'll end up retiring from?

They don't belong in any country but their own, ain't my fault or anyone else they chose to leave. Go home, no one wants you!

I've never heard of working past the age of 65 described as an "opportunity".
Only a politician, sucking off the teat of public money, can say that with a straight face.
They dump millions of people with no skills, no ability to speak another language, no common cultural ties, and no money, AND with violent misogynist tendencies into their country (to show the rest of the world's politicians how concerned and kind they are).....never bothering to ask why they had to travel 3000 miles to live in a Christian country when several muslim countries were within walking distance. They don't have welfare, too?
Next, they tell their CITIZENS that even though they've worked for 45-50 YEARS, they will have to work some more so the politicians can pay people from other countries (who have never paid taxes in their new home) to live here.
Hang the cheerleaders FIRST.
It will make the hanging of the slimy, dirt bag, alcoholic, pedophilic, lying, cheating, stealing, corrupt and loser politicians go a lot quicker.
Speed and efficiency will be important when that starts.
Cheer on....

What type of problems do you think your generation will create. You really cannot blame a whole generation. Look at it this way you were born to make whatever better.

Stop beating yourselves up.
Ordinary people don't do any of these outrageous things which destroy societies.
It is the parasite class among the populations who got control of credit creation and tricked everyone into paying interest on funds they create out of thin air . . . these vampires are the problem.

They have rigged all of the markets and now have complete and absolute control of the world's economy.
They are liars, thieves, and extremely powerful people.

They start the wars, profit from them, and then profit from the creation of mass immigration of entire populations into foreign lands. They use these homeless masses as a weapon against cultured societies that have existed for thousands of years.
The parasite class owns the media companies, pharmaceutical companies, military industry, Big Agriculture, Monsanto and the banks. They are ruthless people and have targeted the entire world to be their debt slaves.
