A New Hope: The role of the Platform Economy in facilitating migrants into the Swedish labour market

A New Hope: The role of the Platform Economy in facilitating migrants into the Swedish labour market

This study begins by taking a political and historical look at the evolution of migration in Sweden as well as the development of the Platform Economy. It then goes on to highlight the need for low-skilled and high-skilled labour before underlining how the Platform Economy can support migrants’ entry into the Swedish labour market. This covers the ability to make money and access the language, culture and society in Sweden.

The publication provides a set of recommendations for action in Sweden. These cover the failings of previous government initiatives, recognition of education/skills and the need to match migrants to employment. The report also presents the case that collective agreements and minimum wage laws should not be mandated on the Platform Economy. It also calls for a Code of Conduct for the platform economy and promotes the benefits that this can bring to the sector, the economy and society as a whole.
