I found 2 very interesting articles this morning that mentions Sweden in regards to wages and disparity.
And how such issues are causing an excess on society that needs to be addressed.

I think in some sectors, this unavoidable. Unless you can predict with a 5-10 yr lead in what the next big thing will. What profession will be in most demand in 2
The problem is the lack of trade skills, electrician, plumbers etc.. the skills that don't conme and go, aren't trendy or glamorous! But provide the basic in life. Colleges and Uni have chased the money and medals, losing sight of their overall purpose.

Ps. I challenge you post a positive Sweden thread? smile.gif

As long as the Swedish football team doesn't cheat again tomorrow night.
(Example 1, Example 2)
Then I am sure it will be easy to praise Sweden's win over England.
As their will be no doubt that the better team won.
