Perussuomalaiset (Finns Party) Chairman Jussi Hallo-aho on Saturday expressed his opposition to relax visa rules for employees from outside the European Union.
Halla-aho, who is well-known for his anti-immigrant stance, also has been convicted for religious defamation and ethnic agitation expressed his opinion to national broadcaster Yle in its Saturday Ykkösaamu (morning breakfast) programme.
He disagreed with any proposal to dismantle Finland’s practice of prioritising job applicants from EU member states or the European Economic Area, reported Yle.
The Finland Chamber of Commerce (FCC) recently made a proposal seeking changes to the law to make it easier for people from around the world to work in Finland and proposed scrapping the rule of prioritising citizen of European Union in labour market.
He said that changing the rule would lead to an influx of cheap labour into the country that would eventually burden taxpayers, said the Yle report.
