Legal experts have criticised a government plan to cut the support for job-seekers who have been granted asylum.
According to the proposal, those who have received asylum would be paid an integration support instead of the labour market support, which would be 90% of the basic allowance.
The change in plan has been based on an aim to make economic savings and that it would make Finland less appealing to refugees.

According to Professor Juha Latvapur of the University of Turku and Adjunct Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Helsinki,the change is unacceptable as it would put people in unequal positions.
