Record number on disability pension (Norway Post, July 29, 2002)
More than 10 per cent of the Norwegian work force is receiving disability pension.

Only in the Netherlands is there a higher percentage of recepients of disability benefits, Aftenposten reports.

At the end of June, there were well over 288,000 disability pensioners in Norway, the highest number ever. (Pop. 4.5 mill.)

So, do we think socialized medicine is incapacitating people or free money is making them fakers? Posted by Orrin Judd at August 5, 2002 10:09 AM
