Denmark -Labour migrants use welfare less than other citizens -March 28, 2014

Eastern Europeans workers are not using the welfare system as much as Danes and people with other nationality backgrounds, according to an analysis from the employers’ organisation Dansk Arbejdsgiverforening. Residents from the new EU countries in eastern Europe are only paid an average of 4,550 euro a year in welfare benefits, such as unemployment support, state education grants (SU), housing assistance and child benefits. This is 1,600 euro less than the average for a Danish citizen. In general, a smaller proportion of newly immigrated foreigners are on social support.
