This dataset contains 2,555 newspaper articles from eight different Finnish news media (Helsingin Sanomat, Turun Sanomat, Maaseudun Tulevaisuus, YLE News (online), Hufvudstadsbladet, Kainuun Sanomat, Ilkka, and Tekniikka & Talous). The data were collected by eight researchers of the WeAll project in the spring of 2016. The newspaper clippings comprise news articles, columns, interviews, editorials and letters to the editor regarding themes of working life, education, and equality.

During the collection process, attention was paid to whether distinctions exist in the articles regarding gender, region, socioeconomic differences, age, sexual orientation, health, disabilities, or ethnic or other minorities. Topics of the articles include work-life balance, well-being at work, bullying, discrimination, social security benefits, organisational and management practices, unemployment, career and educational choices, equality and minorities in working life and education.

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
