No, I have not lost my job, nor do I think I will lose my job at the moment. However, thanks to a new person, I learned that you have to purchase your own insurance in order to survive. There is a small amount that you would get from the government, but there are more things to know!
I have now successfully joined AEA as I have a degree from Canada and I am working full time. It was very easy to join and only costs 90 SEK a month. I have included some of the links that I found useful during my research:
- Go to Arbetsförmedlingen for some information in other languages about this and other topics:
- On Swedish Wikipedia, a list of the different unions (use Google Translate to see which ones might apply to you, then find the appropriate link to the page and then use Google Translate again to help you)
- AEA (Akademikernas a kassa) – the membership forms
- Alfa Kassan for general jobs
