Mandatory Job Offers in Finland

Finnish unemployment authorities say they’ve sent out vastly increased numbers of job offers to out-of-work benefit claimants this year, NewsNow reported. But alongside the increase comes a hike in the number of jobless having their benefits cut for refusing to take up a post that’s on offer. Helsinki job center worker Timo Louhelainen is looking for a worker to fill a vacancy in the S-Market in Pakila. A few clicks and a possible candidate is up on his screen, and a job offer sent. In this case, to a young student. In the space of two years, the employment ministry has doubled the number of job offers made to registered unemployed people. Half a million offers were sent out this year.
