"They earn less than Swedish dentists," said Santesson, refusing to give any more details other than confirming that they earned more than the average Swedish wage of 23,600 kronor per month [roughly NZ$60,000 per year].But who isn't happy? Only those bloated fatcat unionists missing out on their dues,
"They are absolutely not underpaid but the exact wage is my business secret," he told Dagens Nyheter.
The clinic's Polish dentists, of which there are four men and six women, say they were attracted by the money as well as the opportunity for experience they could not have gained at home.
"It's fun to work in a modern clinic in a big city," said chief dentist Wioleta Waszek.
But while the patients and the dentists are happy, the trade union organisation LO, which recently supported a blockade of a building site in Vaxholm because it was using cheaper labour from Latvia, expressed concern.Someone call Nelson! Call it apartheid because it's obviously, well, ummmm, huh? Poor little union, Polish dentists are happy, patients are happy, everyone winning but the union. Cry me a river. Besides...
"It creates apartheid in the labour market," said LO's wage agreements secretary Erland Olauson to Expressen.
Mattias Santesson responded by pointing out that low-paid LO members are precisely the people who would benefit from the option of low-cost dentistry.
