Letter from the Laundry Association to Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson and Business Minister Ibrahim Baylan
The government's crisis action to reduce rental costs in particularly vulnerable sectors should be extended to include laundry and textile service companies in SNI code 96.011 Industrial and institutional laundry. In order to reduce the negative effects of the corona pandemic, the government should also accelerate the work of extending the RUT deduction to cover laundry outside the home according to the RUT inquiry's interim report Fi2020 / 00389 / S1.
Adaptation support to companies that received reduced turnover due to the corona virus
As the door to the hotel room remains closed, the future of many companies in the laundry and textile service industry is also closed. No need for soft sheets and nice towels, no restaurant guests asking for tableware - revenue is lost in an industry where half of the costs are salary. It hits hard. We live in a 100-year storm and now the government needs to act vigorously. We need an open door.
Here is the Swedish Textile Service Association's open letter to Business Minister Ibrahim Baylan. How do you intend to secure an industry that is severely affected by the current situation?
For less consumer-oriented laundry and for those with a focus on the hospitality industry, the financial endurance is in many cases limited to 1-2 months. Big alerts and short-term permits are already laid. We have an acute crisis.

1500 new jobs can't wait. We welcome a very well-written inquiry.
