Around half of Sweden's teenagers aged 16-18 get a job to earn some extra cash during the school summer holidays according to fresh figures from number-crunching agency Statistics Sweden.
The younger they are the less likely it is. One in ten of teenagers aged 13-15 surveyed said yes when asked the same question if they had had a summer job last summer. In total, that means a third of those aged 13-18 had a summer job last summer, writes Statistics Sweden in a press release presenting the figures.
Around a fifth of teenagers (13-18) also work extra the rest of the year after school hours.
Statistics Sweden also writes that 51 percent of those aged 16-18 said they had felt stressed at least once a week during the last six month. It was more keenly felt among girls, where 69 percent said they had felt stressed compared to 34 percent of the boys.
