Customer service in Denmark is non existing and it is OK

In business culture on November 2, 2018 at 17:23

A cab-driver in Denmark was acquitted after he threw a beer can after a customer and after he stated that he wanted to have sex with the customer and beat the customer up. He also called the customer out for being a prostitute. A co-worker confirmed this conversation.

Of course the customer was a famous soccer player so the Jante Law also was a part of the trial.

But the court came to the conclusion that the behavior of the cab driver was within the limits of the law. The soccer player works abroad and in a time where such people are looked at with somewhat suspicion the result could hardly not be another.

Cab-drivers in Denmark are a protected line of work. They are kept free from competition from modern transport firms like Uber. The Danish parliament has outlawed American based ideas in the Danish business environment.

As result transport is extremely expensive and there is no service longer. Especially now where the Danish courts have sanctioned poor customer service.

If you are a tourist and you are thinking about visiting an European country, you will do better if you avoid Denmark.


Corruption in Denmark – verdict

In business culture on June 27, 2018 at 20:48

A number of people some public servicemen working for a public region in Denmark as well as some random sales people from a IT-company named Atea were sentenced in court because they spend money which Atea had hidden on a special account for later use on traveling and dinners.

Every time some public customer bought equipment part of the sales price were put into this account, so the IT-department could buy spare parts without asking for a budget for the purchase which involved politicians resulting in a long and difficult path towards making decisions. Using this account the people in the region could be productive instead of spending days in office unable to work because they needed a mouse, keyboard or even a monitor when things broke.

Good idea but illegal according to the law.

Now not only former Sales people at Atea were convicted in this case but also the firm itself. In all their contracts with the purchase organization at the state called SKI there is an anti-corruption clause. We are all waiting to see the contacts canceled and new tenders being made public, so the tax-payers in Denmark can get cheaper service.

Because corruption is stealing from all Danes.

If the state purchase organization SKI does not cancel all the contracts, we must approach the parliament and demand justice. While corruption is OK for Danish firms if it takes place abroad where the local market demand it as the verdict was in the Carl Bro (Grontmij) case, it has never been accepted inside Denmark. Our local market were clean in the past. Until Atea came around and changed everything under the control of Kunøes companies.

Kunøe who has a past where companies went bankrupt with various allegations about values being sold under price to other companies under his control so far has been able to lawyer himself out of every trouble.

People can google Guideix and Mondo combined with his name to read more about his dark past.

Will he be able to strongarm SKI and the parliament into stop speaking about ending the contracts due to corruption? Will the tax-payers in Denmark once again see people get off just because they are wearing business suits?

Only the future will tell.

ATEA — Biggest Bribery Case Ever in Danish History

Something rotten in Denmark

In business culture on May 12, 2018 at 07:46

The Atea bribe case is about to be settled in court.

The background is that Region Sealand made an agreement where they created an account where they could stack money into at Atea so they could buy things without being dependent of the strict budget rules. At public offices they can risk cuts if they do not use all the money they set aside during a fiscal year. Because then the politician would say “They did not use all their money. They need less next year.” So if they had nothing to use the money for, they asked for a fake invoice so they could get important stuff next year.

A lot of money piled up at that account which everyone knew about. Some of the money were used for study trips abroad so the public servicemen could learn about new technology. Then some of the people who used to work for Atea moved to a new firm and the trouble began. Because the new management at Atea believed that the old employers had agreed to party the account away in exchange of getting orders to the new firm. The new management did not like this special account but they decided to close it down secretly because a lot of hands had gotten their hands dirty. That was until the new firm got a large order.

Suddenly almost every firm in the IT-business in Denmark involved in the tender did sent the same complaint with the same wording. It was revealed that not only Atea but also the rest of the firms shared a people among the shareholders. So while it looks like that the Danish IT-business have free competition but in reality a small group of people control everything.

So regardless if the trial shows that someone was bribed, the question remains. Do we taxpayers pay too much for public IT-projects when a small group of people control the entire business?

Norwegian attack on industries in Denmark

In business culture on February 13, 2018 at 13:46

A huge company from Norway seems to target all Pizza owners in Denmark called Peppe as they got smart lawyers who took out name protection of this common name among Danish pizzashop owners. That is a major blow against the Danish government who have tried to put immigrants into work. Doctors, medical staff and other academically trained professionals find it difficult to work within their line of business because we in Denmark has a higher level in the education area.

Even medical staff from Norway and Sweden are often trained in Denmark attending Danish schools because we have real schools and real universities in a very high standard.

So people who have graduated universities abroad often find themselves driving cabs or working in the fast food industry – sometime starting their own business which we as Danish citizens find good.

There have been Pepe Pizzas and Peppe Pizzas in Denmark since the 1970’s but the Norwegian firm is trying to prevent pizzashops being associated with the name Pepe and Peppe so it is not a vacuum cleaner many calls Hoover.

This move will put a lot of immigrants out of work. It is not acceptable that we should see an increase in employment just because this Norwegian firm protect local interests. We have to ask ourselves how we can hurt Norway as nation most in a peaceful way. Should we target the large number of Norwegian students? Why are they not attending school at home? Why should we pay for their schooling?

I will mail and try if we cannot put something together raising a defense against the aggression from Norway.

More suffering for the ordinary people outside the cities

In business culture on February 4, 2018 at 08:38

In Denmark people living in the areas called “The Rotten Banana” often work in jobs requiring little or only basic education. Now a catastrophe has hit one of those areas. Tvilum is a furniture manufacturer located in Jutland. 700 people were sent home yesterday. For many it is properly their last contact with the labor market in Denmark. Now a life on welfare and personal bankruptcy awaits them.

Of course they will try to look for new investors, but furniture today are built by child labor in third world countries. That trend pushed Tvilum over the edge. You cannot blame the ordinary consumers for that. In a world where membership of the European Union has resulted on loss of early retirement, increased crime rate due to open borders and massive cuts in the education sector for both schools and students, the ordinary customer cannot be expected to summon any sympathy or interest into how furniture is made.

That is the fact. Global free trade equals suffering in both Denmark and in the third world countries. Here we lose our jobs, our pensions and our children chance for higher education. Down there they just have to start to work early.

The bankruptcy of Tvilum will kick the speed of Denmark as a country traveling in two phases into gear. The price for renting a place in the Danish cities has been increased by 42 percent over the last couple of years forcing people who are unemployed to stay out of the cities. A worker who loses his or her job at Tvilum will never have the chance travel into Copenhagen and get a job unless the worker will sleep on the streets as a higher percentage of people end up being forced to every year.

There have never been so many Danes sleeping in the street as homeless people as now. All that thanks to a global economy without the protection of localized taxes and costs for shipping goods over the border.

The shops are closing all over Denmark. You see half-empty shopping malls everywhere and small supermarkets where they do not just hire people under 18 and one single manager are also closing.

The economy in Denmark is crashing down. Please look elsewhere if you want to invest or are looking for a career.
