Their workers get a ton of parental leave and spend less time in the office.Now it looks like at least some of them could get paid to get busy.Forget Netflix and chill: In Sweden, it's all about fika and sex breaks.Per-Erik Muskos, a city council member in Övertorneå, a Swedish town across the Torne River from Finland, has proposed that workers should get a paid, one-hour break each day to go home and have sex with their significant others.Also important: Muskos wants both single people and those in relationships to have the right to use the fitness hour this way. SWEDES SHOULD TAKE a one-hour paid break from work to go home and have sex with their partners, a local councillor suggested.
The proposal comes from Per-Erik Muskos, a council member for Övertorneå.
The Institute for the Study of Labor did find in a 2013 study that people who have sex four or more times a week make more money, but the idea of going home for a romp midday sounds extremely distracting, and kind of impractical.
Muskos says bosses would need to trust that their employees are using the break the way they're supposed to, but that, of course, it couldn't be enforced.
Muskos said he “saw no reason” why the motion wouldn’t pass.
After the Finns and the French, Swedish full-time employees worked the least in Europe with only 1,685 hours on average in 2015, according to a study by economic research institute Coe-Rexecode.
