Norway Liberals to suggest relaxing labour migrant rules

The Liberal Party (V) proposes easing restrictions for businesses when employing foreign workers in Norway.



“We need all kinds of labour and with all possible expertise,” Party leader Trine Skei Grande told NRK. “The companies are best to assess what they need, therefore, more of the power to obtain those they need should lie directly with them.”

The Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise’s (NHO) Dag Aarnes claimed Norway was almost full to capacity with foreign labour, Monday.

Employment agency Adecco states it believes Norway would stop without this, which may come as no surprise to foreigners.

Trine Skei Grande stated economic growth, business idea and Norway’s development “needs people who can help with this driving force in society.”

“One can certainly say ‘no’ to this [labour migration] if Norway’s goal is no increased population, growth, and business development,” she added.

The Progress Party (FrP) believes a cherry-picking policy is a good way to go.

“We thought ‘we told you so’ when NHO came with its initiative,” Morten Øsral Johansen, Party immigration policy spokesperson declared, claiming immigration is self-reinforcing, number-wise.

Mr Johansen believes more what he views as benefits-needing immigrants will cause a negative economic spiral.

“The more that come [here], the more that will need welfare; the more who need welfare, the more [people] we need to take in order to cover these benefits. The economy will eventually collapse,” he warned.

Modern Norwegian includes the verb “å NAVe” and is used by Norwegian youths, according to Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) staff. It means lounging at the government’s expense.

The Liberals (V) will be putting their proposal to Parliament, Wednesday.
