Abstract
The Swedish Model is a somewhat vague concept that can mean many things,
depending on who you ask. But usually it is characterized by the great deal of
autonomy the labour market organizations enjoy. Traditionally, the unions and the
employer associations in question are responsible for the functioning of the labour

Much of the debate today is focused on the so called ‘simple jobs’ (i.e. lowskilled
jobs) and whether Sweden needs to introduce a minimum wage.
This thesis aims at investigating how the two largest and historically most
important organizations (Landsorganisationen and Svenskt Näringsliv) see the
problem(s) with the labour market today, using Carol Bacchi’s discursive “What’s
the problem represented to be”-analysis. (Less)
