The employer association Dansk Industri (DI) has stressed the importance of having an international workforce. Unemployment is at its lowest since 2006 and DI predicts that it will fall even more in the coming years. According to DI, almost half of their member companies employ workers from abroad, and foreigners currently fill 123,000 full-time positions. The organisation suggested reducing the income threshold for getting a work permit from 375,000 to 325,000 kroner per year so that the professional competences that are lacking domestically can be secured.
