7 people were fired this morning

7 of my co-workers lost their job today. The reason was to spare them from the consequences of the changes in the European Union Cross-Border Enforcement Directive.

Until today Danish salespersons working abroad was protected against the corrupt police abroad because Denmark had opted out of this directive. If they just managed to get out of the country without being stopped they were safe. Now every corrupt policeman south of the border can look up car license plates and mail the ticket.

The Danish government has been sleeping and accepted a referendum which left a lot of jobs in danger because no employer would force employees into a danger zone similar to sending relief workers into areas controlled by ISIS.

So in order to save the dignity of my co-workers they were fired so they were free to seek job opportunities inside Denmark instead.

Instead local salespersons will be hired. Mostly likely they would settle for less salary because there have to be room for a boss and a secretary to the boss who translate speak German or some of the other languages to the boss. The boss would be located near an airport so transport by car can be avoided.

We all enjoyed beer and wine before they left for home. It is always sad when you have to say goodbye with someone who you have worked with for several years.
