Next storyteller, a young man, works for a contractor to the Kiruna mine.
– I’m from [Nn], about 300 km from Kiruna. I’ve been working in Kiruna for almost four years. Fly in, fly out.
– Do you say that? Fly in, fly out?
– Well that’s how others say it so…
– Who others?
– Who look at us, who don’t live here, where I work. Or, how to put it, I don’t use the word myself, but that’s how it is, you come here and work, and then I go home. […]

– No, it’s just the way it is, what can I say… There are a lot [of us commuting] who don’t have any plans to move here, you just come and get work and then you go home.
– Have you thought about moving here?
