Don’t hire a foreigner

A new law prevent Danes from hiring a foreigner.

Foreigners in Denmark have a number of papers they have to obtain in order to work legally in Denmark. Until now the foreigners had received a fine if they did get caught working without these papers.

The new law means that the Danes who hire a foreigner will receive a fine of DKK 10,000 if the paper work is not in order. Even the private houseowner who hire a foreigner to paint his house will receive this fine.

The Danes can search in a database where they can check on the persons they want to hire. It costs them DKK 2,750 per search.

The new law is aimed to fight unemployment among Danes. It is estimated that the present crisis can be stopped if the unemployed Danes can get a job instead of foreigners because foreigners who live less than 3 years in Denmark can enter a special system where they can avoid to pay full Danish tax.
