Demonstrate or be damned

The Stockholm Spectator has an interesting article about the use of the "employment service" to organise union demonstrations.

Fortunately I have only ever had a single dealing with the service, when I first arrived in Sweden and registered as seeking work. Initially they didn't want to register me, there was apparently no point as without being a native Swedish speaker I was unemployable. Well, I guess it would help keep the stats down if I hadn't registered. But I got a well paying job and have never had to go back so have never had the pleasure of being organised to demonstrate.
