Job discrimination based on heritage?

Hard time getting callbacks

Back to the thread subject!


Many companies are just afraid of change, and basically, they want to keep it "Swedish".

However, due to many global changes and structures, diverse employees is actually more beneficial than having people who are stuck inside the Swedish bubble.

If only more companies in Sweden saw that diversity as a positive thing.
It is something that will take many many years to come.

Yes, it will take time because it is seen that diversity in the work place means a Swede did not get hired...

If there was an economic boom and many jobs were needed that would help, Will it happen??? I doubt it...

Exactly.
If there is choice between a highly qualified non-Swede vs average qualified Swede.
The job will still go to the Swede.

It is just how it is. Safe.
Only smart management know that the highly qualified will be the beneficial one.
Look at Spotify.

There once was a laddie named Twiceshy. Who just couldn't be a nice guy. He puffed up his chest and tried to impress. But his brain was the size of a fruit fly.


That's so cute. I dissed you for your lack of wit and unengaging banter, and here you come back with a non-shitty limerick.

What did you have to sacrifice to come up with this? I am estimating about 3 hours of work, one oxycodone, 5mg of Ritalin and one adult diaper.

9/10 for effort. 4/10 for the poetry

How 'bout this;

TL Administrators - can you block this individual?
Everyone is entitled to opinions, and generate a argument through a sound debate.

But this has gone too far, and this is disrespectful to the TL community.

I agree. Ban us both though!
This has gone on far too long and these two individuals (me included) have overstepped all boundaries. I don't know about you lot but I am at the end of my tether!

While you're at it. Ban those driftwood Trumpkins that have come in here through 4chan/pol and similar cesspits and have no connection to Sweden what-so-ever. Their tedious habit of pulling everything down to the level of "white good / brown bad" while being uncultured yanks themselves, should not be accepted.

Once we're gone there should be only the rest of you board-wrecks left. Which is as it should be.

Not your call. Would you like a safe space?
You might want to ponder why some foreigner comes around and posts 1900 heavily generalized posts about immigration on a forum about Sweden. Do you have similar focus issues?

This place offers no intellectual challenge to me so I am going to watch my favorite movie...

Gunga Din, for those not familiar with it, it's about a hard working native Indian who rose through the ranks of the British army and won promotion and the respect of all that served with him.

Who said Indians were kept back and not allowed to rise through the ranks of The Raj because of heritage, he got a job didn't he???

5 points for attempt at baiting. Not biting though.

My fav movie scene is in Apocalypse Now. The beautiful young schoolteacher wearing an Ao Dai, sacrificing her life to throw a grenade into a helicopter full of Amerifats. Instant goosebumps. More of that pls.

Also enjoy The Quiet American, the latter movie. How the old fox Michael Caine gets the girl AND turns his competition, the young clueless deluded and murdering OSS (CIA?) operative, over to the Viet Cong (or Viet Minh?) to get killed. Beautiful stuff.

Not at all! She portrays a true Vietnamese hero

As history has shown us, it takes a lot of guts to take a grenade/bomb to the colonialists. We have a lot to thank the Vietnamese nationalists for. 55000 of your countrymen killed for example.

This is only my personal experience/observation, so it might not be worth Jack Sh*t, but I think the biggest obstacle to not finding work here is the language barrier.

If you don't speak good Swedish it really limits your possibilities. I struggled for a long time to find a good job as well, and I'm Caucasian/European and from a Western country - and I have a short and non-exotic name. I observe many people in Sweden in the workforce, many people of color, from many different backgrounds and ethnicities, who have jobs - good jobs even, but they all speak good enough Swedish. That's they key, I believe. I don't think the Swedes are discriminating against people for their ethnicity or national origin so much as they are giving preferential treatment to people who can speak good Swedish. Others will have different observations, of course.
