Employment rates in Denmark on the rise
Even better, at the end of December, 2,721,000 people in Denmark were working in paid employment – and that is only 1,100 below the highest level ever. But employers are becoming increasingly worried whether they will be able to get the labour they need. “Danish firms have rarely needed as many extra hands as they do now, so it produces almost historic opportunities for people to find work,” said Jens Troldborg from the Danish employers’ association Dansk Arbejdsgiverforening. However, the trade union think-tank Arbejderbevægelsens Erhvervsråd (AE) points out that there are still a lot of unemployed people, as well as those who are employed and would like to work more hours, and that Danish workers have only received moderate wage increases in recent years.
