Progress Party politician Robert Eriksson fears the consequences of labor migration from the European countries.

Aftenposten has written about the increasing number søreuropeere come to Norway to work because they see no future in their crisis-hit country.

Leader of the Labour and Social Committee in Parliament, Robert Eriksson, believes it is understandable that the situation in Europe with high unemployment and economic crisis makes more people want to seek their fortunes in Norway, but he does not want to give immigrant workers the same welfare benefits as the Norwegians enjoy off.

- Welfare schemes in these countries are facing dramatic reductions. I believe this will attract many thousands more migrants to Norway in the years to come. Norwegian authorities can not sit in his naivety, passive and just look at that Norway is shaping up to be the whole of Europe Social Security, he says to Aftenposten.
Welfare Refugees

Eriksson fears the welfare of refugees.

- EU decides in too much of the Norwegian welfare benefits, says Eriksson.

Not long ago accepted the Norwegian government, ESA's claim that one could come to Norway to receive unemployment benefits after only a day's work.

- The fact that the Europeans can be here and work a little while and then bring the Norwegian welfare benefits back to their homeland. In addition, you can also pick up the family-related benefits to the country. This means that Norway is the pure social paradise. The Norwegian welfare system was created to ensure that Norwegian citizens a safe income, not that one should be a honey pot for Europe, he said.
Will reduce social security benefits

Eriksson believes the only way out is either to replace the EEA with a free trade agreement or make sure there is a five-year vesting period for Norwegian family-related benefits, reduce dagpengesatsen if the EU citizen returning to his homeland, and that the income from their home country should be involved in to form the basis for the benefits you get.

Eriksson has submitted an interpellation to the Minister of Labour in which he asks:

"What measures will the Minister put in time to secure Norwegian welfare schemes and to prevent a growing number of well-being of refugees from Europe, and will minister to a greater degree of challenge the EU's order to change the Norwegian schemes?"

- Become a Norwegian

Head of Government and Management Committee, SV Heikki Holmås, believes it is wrong to look at people who want to work in Norway as a problem.

- This is how FrP always react against foreigners. We should not meet immigrant workers by saying: Welcome, the Norwegian as soon as possible, do your duty and claim your right, it is important that we say to the Greeks and Spaniards who come that they may become full members of the Norwegian working life, says he said.

Holmås is concerned that there should be an A-team and B-team in the Norwegian working life.

- We can already see that many foreign workers have lower wages than the Norwegians and usually work as substitutes. Studies have also shown that many foreign workers in a company can lead to lower productivity due to language confusion. It is important that we work for people who come here to get the Norwegian wage and working conditions, he said.

Against social dumping

Holmås believes one way to proceed is to make it easier to make the general collective agreements, making it easier for the working supervision to monitor working conditions.

- We must have a close contact with trade unions and industry to avoid social dumping, he said.

Holmås also want to re-introduce free tuition for immigrants from EEA countries.

- Progress Party and the Conservatives removed this ability and it was a big mistake. Norwegian is the key to integration. Labor has now agreed with RE about this, so this is something that should be given priority if the crisis develops. Good tuition reduces the possibility that immigrant workers be reduced to social security recipients, he said.

In addition, mean SV that it will be important that the Government says no to EU temporary workers.
