Swedish factories cut language requirements as production booms - Radio Sweden | Sveriges Radio
With Swedish industrial companies producing at capacity levels unseen in a decade, many are dropping the Swedish language requirements, helping those who came in the refugee crisis find jobs.

The combination of

  1. imported deflation from the eurozone => very low inflation => zero interest rate
  2. a continuing bubble in housing (seriously, it is getting ridiculous now)
  3. years with trade surplus has led to a very low public debt, weakening the prohibitions against government spending
  4. government using the money pump for handling the refugee situation
  5. election next year so government has a political need to spend
has led to really low unemployment. And lo and behold, when unemployment is down, employers actually has use for freshly immigrated persons who barely knows the language. Which leads to integration! Who could have known?!
