rugby doesn't even con-descend to associate with anyone in the middle class. Other than those illegals he employed at pt wages. How would this elitist know how they feel?

"The Norwegian economy is an example of a mixed economy, a prosperous capitalist welfare state featuring a combination of free market activity and large state ownership in certain key sectors. Public health care is free (above a certain level), and parents have 46 weeks paid[84] parental leave. The state income derived from natural resources includes a significant contribution from petroleum production. Norway has a very low unemployment rate, currently 2.6%.[85] 69% of the population aged 15–74 are employed.[86] Persons in the labour force are either employed or unemployed. The remaining group of persons is labelled not in the labour force.[87] 9.5% of the population aged 18–66 is receiving disability pension[88] and 30% of the labour force are employed by the government, the highest in the OECD.[89] The hourly productivity levels, as well as average hourly wages in Norway, are among the highest in the world."

2.6% unemployment-this is how we do it
