3,000 people lost their job during Christmas

In business culture on December 30, 2018 at 07:33

Once again the digitalized world has created human sacrifice and suffering. Top-toy who franchised Toy”R”Us and owns smaller shops announced that they are closing down.

Danish children are stopped being children at an earlier age than before. The society demands that they plan their future during their years in the primarily education schools.

Also the double income society leaves many of them to get education through computers where they soon also learn of the dark side of the Internet. The videos of the recent killings of two women in Morocco from Denmark and Norway made its way back to Denmark within 24 hours because the terrorists hacked the social media accounts of friends, family and universities so all who had the slightest connection to the two victims got the videos showing the terrible murders.

How can you stay a child in such a society?

You cannot!

The children soon move to Fortnite, Grand Theft Auto and Counter Strike so they are prepared to adult life how it is once they grow up. A new kind of The Spanish flu is just around the corner, tourists are warned against gang wars in Copenhagen by the US embassy in Denmark and life as professional soldier is actually the only career choice if you come from a low-income family thanks to the recent cuts in student grants.

The children need to prepare. They are asked aged 14-16 to decide which kind of secondary education they want to attend. A wrong choice there cannot be undone as the government has banned student grants for a second try in the system. You have one shot and such an important decision cannot be made overnight so the thinking process about the future starts years before.

3,000 employees lose their work. 3,000 families now join the hunt for a new job if they are aged below 40 or the hunt for cheap housing outside the cities if they are older and basically unwanted in the labor market.

If you are a young person who has to make a decision about what to work with once you leave school, none recommend working in a shop anymore. The shops have live up to a lot of rules about paying taxes and protect the environment. The webshops which often are located in Asia can pay their employees a bowl of rice and dumb whatever leftover from the production outside the plant. They even can get their packets delivered from Asia to Denmark cheaper compared to a Dane wanting to send a packet across Denmark to another Dane. How it can be so, is not to understand, but that is how it is. Foreign webshops are given discount in the postal system, so they can kick people out of their jobs in Danish shops.

2018 has been a year where the ordinary Dane learned how to be afraid of life itself. Traveling abroad is dangerous. Tourist buses are blown up in Egypt, people get their throat cut in Morocco and elsewhere, walking the Danish streets in parts of Copenhagen can get you shot by accident and if look after your job and provide the finest service cannot ensure you against unemployment.

Once you get unemployed you are at the mercy of the people in the unemployment office where you are sent to work for your unemployment benefits you have paid for as a kind of insurance while you were working. You are sent to work in firms who befriend the cases workers so they can use you while you are “job-tested” to put other firms out of business. In a perfect world firms in other countries, but in reality the result is random.

It happened to more than 10,000 people in the graphic and printing industry. It happened to people working in electronic resellers like Fona. Now it happens for 3,000 people in the toy shops.

2018 has not been a fine year for anyone in Denmark.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

What a joke!


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.
