Danish production wages increasing faster than abroad

The new figures reveal that Danish wages in production are increasing by 2.2 percent annually – 0.7 percentage points higher than the average of 13 other nations. Dansk Industri (DI), the confederation of Danish industry, is concerned about the ability of Danish companies to compete. Out of the 14 countries that are part of DI’s report, the greatest increase took place in Norway (a 3.6 percent increase), while Poland, the US and the UK also saw production wages increase at a greater rate than Denmark. “We should be equal or lower than these nations to avoid Danish companies losing orders and growth,” said Steen Nielsen, the deputy head of DI.
