The people I want to read this entry, cannot do it

The people in France face a tough question when they will vote at the election this week.

Should they support Macron for not?

Because while the sound of reforms might sound fine, the decision to actually go through with them will leave 40 percent of the population behind. Those left behind are those who only speaks french. Those who do not have the highest education. Those whos mission in life have been to serve in their jobs faithfully knowing that the thanks they got were security in their jobs.

The experience Danish workers who suffer under the Danish flexibility system knows this too well. In Denmark there is actually no difference between a temporary contract and a permanent work contract. You can always be fired and the employer doesn’t need a very good reason for it. The Danish worker get very little compensation:

  • The first 3 months, the employee gets 1 months notion/salary
  • Until 3 years of employment, the employee gets 3 months notion/salary
  • Until 6 years of employment, the employee gets 4 months notion/salary
  • Until 9 years of employment, the employee gets 5 months notion/salary
  • Until 12 years of employment, the employee gets 6 months notion/salary, 1 months bonus
  • Until 15 years of employment, the employee gets 6 months notion/salary, 2 months bonus
  • Until 18 years of employment, the employee gets 6 months notion/salary, 3 months bonus

When an employee is hired the employee has to work faithfully until the last day of employeement unless otherwise ordered by the employer to avoid suspension where the worker is sent home losing all payment. When it happen the trade unions who is more interested in dinners and internal holidays often are able to provide very little compensation.

The bonus also include the problem that you have to pay tax of it and because Denmark has a tax system where you pay extra for higher income, most people cannot enjoy their bonus very much.

This is the system French people can face if they vote for Macron. Their positions in the firms they work in, are no longer secure. If they complain about coffee or tea, it is called cooperation problems and it an accepted reason for firing people.

That is why most Danes switch jobs every 3 year. There are no loyalty bonus. It is everyone for themselves.

Secondly most people don’t know that every 3 person on the Danish job market in reality is working under slave-like working conditions where they do not earn the right to unemployment benefits. Caseworkers are befriended by employers and given various services by employers. In exchange the caseworkers see to that unemployed people are ordered to work for their unemployment benefits or social security at those friendly employers.

They don’t earn right to vacation. They don’t earn right to additional unemployment benefits. It is called job-training or job-testing. In reality it is a system which allows employers to get access to a cheap workforce. People who used to earn a normal salary, are now replaced with people being “trained” or “tested”.

Is that fair? That you shall lose your job, just because your employer do not want to pay full salary filling your job-position?

Of course not, but it is the Danish system.

There are even cases where workers have been fired and suddenly they find themselves being “tested” or “trained” at their old work to a very much lower salary.

Do not follow in the path of us Danes!!

That is the message I will send to the French people.

The only problem: I do not speak French!!

Will you kick yourself out of your job?

In politics on May 6, 2017 at 05:26

That is really the questio the French voters have to ask themselves when they vote at the French presidential election tomorrow on May 7th.

We have a candidate – Macron – who wants to create a Danish working environment in France.

That means:

  • That some workers might have to struggle until they are 70 something before they are allowed to retire
  • That every employee will be hired on trial basis forever. Even with more than 18 years of employment the employee can be fired with only 6 months notice
  • That there is no fixed period when your employment starts. The first 3 months you can be terminated with only days notice.
  • That some lines of business are allowed to exchange workers on normal salary conditions with people who are in “job-trainingsrotation” working 3 months at the time for their unemployment benefits, social services or even food stamps. A system which should make the Danish businesses more competitive on the Global market.
  • That employers are allowed to kick French workers out and “hire” immigrants without paying them salary if they provide language schooling for a few hours per week. It is very used in Danish supermarkets and in the service sector (cleaning, dish washing etc).

That is the conditions French workers face if Macron comes in power.

Will you live like that? Ask us Danes who didn’t have rich parents who could finance our university education. We live like this every day not being to tell you if we will be alive to experience retirement. We were cheated of our early retirement. We live in constant fear from being kicked out and see our job being taken by someone who needs to learn how to talk Danish or people in so-called job-training.

I know how I would vote if I were given the choice. Do you?

What happened in Sweden yesterday – a sad necessary update

In politics on April 8, 2017 at 06:01

The capital of Sweden – Stockholm – was hit by a tragedy yesterday. So far 4 people lost their lives – my thoughts goes to their relatives who now miss a loved one. A dog was also reported to have lost its life.

When I wrote about Sweden the last time it was more about ordinary daily life in Sweden. The killings in Malmoe continued. It is a situation which cannot be solved because it is the tale about modern life where people with ordinary income and ordinary skills are no longer needed in a modern digitized world with global competition and open borders inside the European Union.

It will lead to more crime. It will lead to more radicalized politics.

But this is on another level. This is terror. This is about trying to tell people that they cannot walk safely in our streets and shops.

Of course leaving your home is always a gamble. Several hundred people die in traffic every year. People medicate themselves to death trying to stay employed in a modern stressful work-environment. So the message the criminals are trying to make us believe is wrong. They cannot bully us into isolation in our homes because we have already made the decision to be part of life. Everytime we speed our bikes and cars to the fully creating dangerous situations we say no to terror. Everytime we continue to work until the level where we see the bright light and hear the voices of deceased relatives, we say no to terror.

Today it is Saturday but Monday morning I will leave my home and go to work as usual. I will defy their threats and make the roads about Horsens unsafe. I will find tasks to do at work so I will work overtime. The terrorists shall not win this battle.

I don’t know who is behind this attack and I believe that the full extent of the truth will be hidden as they always try in Sweden.

When Oluf Palme was shot the police was stopped, when they discovered that the murder might have been the result of anger towards the export of weapons to countries in the Middle East and Asia. A fall guy was selected and convicted only to be aquitted by an appeal court.

When Anna Lindh was murdered they tried it again and arrested a fall guy because the real killers motive didn’t fit the offical agenda. But too many security cameras prevented that they could go through with that and the killer was sentenced to prison.

I hope that they are not afraid to go after the real killer this time.

But most important, we owe all those who have paid the highest price that we allow ourselves not to be afraid and go out and work and live to our fullest.

What happened in Sweden yesterday?

In politics on February 20, 2017 at 08:29

When I visited Copenhagen the last time for at meeting within the firma I work for, I seriously considered taking a day of and visiting Malmoe just over in Sweden. A train ride taking only 30 minutes could take me to another country.

But my co-worker warned me of going there. What I didn’t know was that Malmoe is the murder capital of the Nordic countries. Over 50 murders took place in Malmoe in just one year. In Denmark about 50-80 people are murdered countrywide. So how can just one city in Sweden become so dangerous?

Because it is lying just next to the border to Denmark!

Before Sweden introduced such a strict border control that you think back at crossing into East Berlin back in the days of the cold war, Sweden was open for immigration. A lot of people skipped Denmark trying to leave Africa for a better life because in Denmark the police are ready to pull your gold tooth out if orders were given by the government.

Then of course. For many years the authorities have bought up houses in the deserted parts of Denmark called “The Rotten Banana” only to tear them down. So when the immigration crisis happened there were no houses left in Denmark and immigrants had to be housed in tents.

Immigrants are not stupid. They left Africa looking for new housing, social benefits and of course jobs if their only basic education would allow them to land a job as dishwasher. So a tent would be a bad start, compared to Sweden’s promise of house due to the vast areas where people deserted Sweden and left for the United States 100 years ago. States like Wisconsin and Minnesota for a large part consist of people with origins from Sweden.

However, Sweden is a large and cold country so many became stuck in Malmoe and here they found old enemies from back home. They started to fight as they did home. People began to die and poorly google translated as people in the White House do, people began to believe that it must have been terrorism because Sweden is known to be a peaceful country.

So President Trump was right when he said that something happened in Sweden just yesterday. A Swedish policeman has made statistic public that crimes in Sweden just like crimes in Denmark for a large part is committed by people with foreign origins. It might be 1 generation back; it might be 10 generations back but the trend is clear. Crime is on the rise so Sweden is no longer a peaceful country and a textbook example of what will happen if you don’t have a border control.

Sweden has learned its lesson. Prepare yourself for the sound of latex gloves if you choose to go there.

I don’t.

Making America great again – volume 1

In politics on November 17, 2016 at 10:11

OK. Trump wants to make America great again.

How can he achieve that?

  1. Jobs. The ordinary people need jobs (and some entertainment, so they are quiet)
  2. Stop importing stuff. The debt is increasing.

How can you stop importing stuff?

  1. You recycle all what you can: All over the United States there are abandoned buildings and abandoned cars. If you look at country like Denmark, we tear down unused houses. If we don’t they soon will house criminals from the Eastern Europe or being used for prostitution where poor women from Africa are smuggled to Denmark in a human traficking scheme. We are however not the best in the world to reuse cement. In the Netherlands they are able to reuse a greater percentage for roads and new buildings. Look at a city like Detroit. Tear down all the unused buildings. Look at the man-power needed for that. At the same time cobber from wires, steel etc. can be recycled instead of importing the matrials reducing the import
    .
  2. Urban gardening: Why use tons of energy and money to buy and bring food into the cities? Ask the church communities to use any empty building property for urban gardening and pass legislation so any empty/deserted property can be turned into small fields used for urban gardening without risking the user being charges with trespassing. The church communities can then distribute the product for the poor and needed
    For new buildings make legislation where it is ensured that anybuilding below 4 levels are make with roof where people can plant and harvest the outcome
    .
  3. Use cheap unlimited energy resources: It is not matter whether you believe in global warming or not. It is a question about saving money. Solar energy is huge in Denmark. In the United States there are large areas where none are living which can be turned into the world biggest free energy source. At Oksbøl in Denmark 1,296 solar panels produce 300,000 kWh per year. Places in Death Valley there room for 100 times the number of panels making such an enterprise a profitable business. It is just cheaper than mining or drilling.
    Denmark is also a frontrunner in making wind mills. They test 600 feet high wind mills. If United States wants to building wind mills made of recycled materials, they can come to Denmark. They can ask to produce on their own on license using American workers. In Denmark there are many unemployed workers from this industry and they can be hired as instructors for almost no money because Danes don’t like to be unemployed. It is a real opportunity for the United States. Once they rely solely on their own energy sources the countries in the middle east really dont count anymore. OPEC would be a thing of the past. No American soldiers need to die over there. America would be great again.

Dear Trump

Denmark has some of the answers. The Netherlands have others. Send someone if you dont have time. Why miss a business oppertunity and the chance to make America great again?
