Back in 2012 I wrote a blog entry about people being lured to Denmark believing that their hard-earned education could secure them a job in Denmark despite the fact that our education system is on a so much higher level.
A lot of people have read the blog entry. Some have emailed me trying to tell me that I was mistaken.
But articles in the Danish newspapers this week proved me right. Immigrants with PhD in philosophy find themselves working as cleaners. It seems to be unfair taking into consideration that they often have spent 5 years or more taking classes at their local universities or colleges. But that is what a foreign exam qualifies them to. It is not slave labor as some articles suggest. It is about an intense competition with local workers. And the local people are under pressure. They are forced to write applications for at least 8 jobs regardless if they are qualified to seek it or not. If they don’t they cannot get social welfare.
So the jobs are not there. I wish that our politicians would abandon the green card system to Denmark. It is a scam. It is a lie to make people abroad believes that there are jobs to get in Denmark and lure them here to jobs they in no way can qualify themselves for unless they start their entire schooling over.
To jobs applicants:
Stay out of Denmark. If you travel here you will be forced to work for almost nothing. Don’t waste your money hoping to find a job in Denmark.
