- Here is some insight into the danish system. If you do not have a job, yes, you still get a lot(!) of money, and where as the article describes that as a positive thing it has actually become a HUGE problem in Denmark. You see, too many danes simply do not get a job, because they can just live a decent life off of nothing but welfare money, and that results in a really bad economic situation overall. That way the welfare system gets badly overloaded. Those who do not have a job, strain on the system, and as long as we have fewer people CREATING value for Denmark than we have people who are CONSUMING value, the economy will decline and eventually collapse on itself.
Bottom line. People get apathetic and they become selfish, and that's a REALLY bad thing in Denmark because our entire national welfare system is build upon the idea of solidarity and working together...May 31, 2014
- My husband also was an employee and employer and also left Denmark to have his own business in America (North). He loved Denmark but he loved the U.S. Better. He said that in Denmark if there wasn't a law that you COULD do something, then you couldn't do it.Jun 1, 2014
