Is it a myth that employers are reluctant to hire people from other countries? Which are the factors that affect the possibilities for a non Swedish person to get an employment in Helsingborg? The result of the interviews was surprisingly enough contradictive to the general picture on the matter that is found in various media of society and from research on the subject. A positive attitude towards employing immigrants was found among the respondents. Although the result at first sight seems to collide, a different picture emerges while looking closer at the context, as is discussed in the last chapter of this paper. (Less)
