DOES THE AVERAGE Swede live a better, more comfortable life than an upper-class American? No doubt.

This is what The Swedish Part Model (a collaboration between trade unions and employers) is demonstrating with a good dose of humour in this video. The purpose is not to make other nations realize how bad they have it (even though it’s pretty obvious), but to make the Swedes appreciate how well their social model funcions and how hard their unions work at it.

Six-month paternity leave? Personal trainer paid for by your work allowance as a preventive healcare measure? Six weeks of holidays per year? If “like a swede” was a real trend, I wish it would overtake the world.
