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 about the pride of the French people?

In politics on June 25, 2016 at 06:01

In 1959 France removed themselves from NATO. As a proud people they didn’t like the increased influence on NATO by the United States. The result was a born-again proud France.

Now many years later they remain in the European Union which basically now can be considered as “Germany and all the rest”. It is the economy in Germany which holds the European Union together. It leaves very little room for independent movements in French. The Germans play the music of their choice and France is reduced to dance following the tune.

What about the ordinary people in France?

A contributing reason for many people in United Kingdom to vote against the European Union were that they were banned from their own capital. Rich people from outside the European Union – many of them loaded Russian people with lot of money have purchased houses to such an extend that none of the ordinary citizens can afford to live there.

Where will these people go and buy houses now where their estates are outside Europe which is the playground they use to spent their money in. Will they start buying up housing in Paris forcing ordinary people out of Paris? They would never go to Berlin due to strict tax-rules in Germany. A lot of the money are earned in way which would be criminal in a lot of countries.

Maybe it is time for the French people to show the world that they are not just another of the countries which will settle dancing after the music played by the Germans. Maybe it is time to show the world that they never forgot the greatness of Charles de Gaulle.

The rest of the world is waiting for an answer to the question whether France remains one of the great countries in Europe or they are reduced to “another one of the rest”.

A prayer for France

In politics on November 14, 2015 at 07:27

Like the cowards they are terrorists once again attacked ordinary citizens who might never even have heard about the conflicts the terrorists promote.

I will send my prayers to people in France.

I don’t really have more words for this tragedy so I will just stop here.

The newspaper Guardian behind a secret attack on Denmark?

In politics on August 4, 2015 at 17:30

The English newspaper “The Guardian” has allowed a disturbed Danish woman to write about asylum seekers and how the supposely should be welcome in Denmark.

I am shocked.

We all know that the United Kingdom face trouble because France has let them down by allowing asylum seekers to camp near the Channel tunnel. They really want to install dangerous electric fence so people can be killed off if they try to enter the United Kingdom through the tunnel but it has not been possible yet.

But just because they have trouble with asylum seekers it doesn’t mean that Denmark should have space for them.

Denmark as a welfare state is in huge trouble and on the verge of a breakdown due to the high number of asylum seekers. Let me tell you some of the problems we as Danes have faced the resent years:

  1. No early retirement called “Efterlon” in Danish: For a lot of Danes life has been about making career until they were 40 and then starting to plan their retirement the last 20 years in the workforce. The costs of asylum seekers and foreign aid programs abroad trying to limit the number has forced the Danish government to force the Danes to work instead of receiving their well deserved pension.

  2. Cuts in social benefits: People who are living together without being married have to live alone because otherwise they will be considered responsible to cover living costs for the other occupent of the address.

  3. Abandoned villages: Jobs and housing seem to be centered around the major cities in Denmark leaving the rest of Denmark to end up as something between wasteland and wilderness. The authorities use a lot of money to tear down abandoned buildings so they don’t end up housing theves from Eastern Europe who sleep in the abandoned houses during the nights and then drive into the cities by day where they shoplift in huge groups often overpowering the employees in the shops.

  4. Abandoned villages: Young people born in the countryside and smaller cities have to leave their families because school is not existing. Since 1970 more than 2/3 of the Danish public school covering form 1 to 9 has been closed. Often schools outside the cities so the students have to travel hours in order to go to school.

  5. Healthcare: The state of Denmark cannot treat everyone for free anymore. They have categorized and selected some illnesses over others. Cancer is a fine illness to get. They have put limits on the days people have to wait for treatment. Depression is bad thing to get because do you get children at some point and should they suffer from any problems in school you will be fined more than 100.000 for a stay in a treatment facility because you put children in the world knowing that you had this illness.

  6. Social services: People with low income or people who are suffering from various illnesses can lose their children by forced adoption. Children in foster care are adopted by force because it is cheaper for the system with adoptive children than children in foster care.

  7. Cuts in social benefits: Students have to etablish debts because a stricter regulation regarding student grants make it impossible to take some years off working full time, so now only welthy families can afford education or risk life long debt with huge interest making it impossible to gain profit from going to school instead of dropping out.

Fact is:

The conditions in Denmark are not better than the conditions the asylum seekers run from.

  • A lot of people suffers from war trauma because the Danish politicians since 1990 has sent soldiers to almost every conflict in the world. Some have killed civilians when they returned home. Others have committed suicide and some cannot live indoor and you find the sleeping in the woods where they shun other people.

  • The jobs are sent to China or people with no qualifications are coming in from India because India due to widespread cheating has given a lot of people fine titles so they look qualified.

  • Values are stolen from Danes by people from Eastern Europe.

  • Entire lines of businesses are taken by the immigrants making Danes unemployed. Asylum seekers from Somalia sit on almost all the import of Khat making it impossible for future immigrants to establish themselves in that business because they protect their business with violence.
  • Danish women servicing men on private matters have seen their jobs going to trafficed women making it impossible for future immigrants to enter this line of business suited well for them due the lack of educational demands.

  • If you come with a foreign education you will most likely have to take jobs outside your line of business. A lot of medical staff has been recruited as cab drivers due to their ability to learn fast which is a plus for a cab driver where you have to learn the names of the streets for obvious reasons.

  • You are asking yourself: Why are the Danes not on the run if things are so bad? Because mobility is an issue in Denmark. First the police guard the road with speed traps making commuting to foreign jobs difficult if not possible. Parking is an issue and most people need a vehicle to go. A man in Copenhagen has been jailed for 4 months because he made a fuss against a parking attendant.

    Secondly Danes are not used to relocate themselves inside Denmark so they are very unlikely to do it outside Denmark. In Denmark we live by the Jante Law which you can look up on Wikipedia. A Dane relocating to another part of Denmark doesn’t expect to be an integrated part of the community. Maybe it would be possible for his grand children. He will always be the stranger.

With all these things speaking against going to Denmark why does The Guardian then make this article based on this disturbed womans ideas?

Is it because The Guardian acts on the behalf of the English government?

Do they want to create a huge crisis inside the European Union in a time where they think of leaving the Union.

We as Danes are offended.
