A month ago a Danish politician suggested immigrants be paid less. This proposal is now being echoed by a Swedish minister. The basic principle, immigrants are being prevented from getting a job, due to the welfare society's 'perks'.

Tighter rules on parental leave for the foreign-born and more simple and low-paid jobs will increase the chances for refugees to quickly find work and integrate into society, Integration and Gender Equality Minister Nyamko Sabuni said on Monday.
The proposals are outlined in Sabuni's new book "The New Sweden" (Det nya Sverige), which will be released on Tuesday.
"It is extremely important that we are a bit unconventional if we are to succeed," she told Svenska Dagbladet on Monday.
In her book, she suggests the idea of linking the amount of parental leave allotted with when a foreign-born child arrives in Sweden: the older the child, the shorter the amount of time off.
Sweden's integration minister and Liberal party member Nyamko Sabuni is out with a new book in which she suggests shorter parental leave and lower entry salaries for the country's newly arrived immigrants.
Sabuni says that the suggestions in her book, "The New Sweden", aim at getting more immigrants onto the job market.
