Denmark -High wages and being competitive -June 09, 2015

Employees at industrial companies create much more value than they cost; therefore not a problem for the industry that workers receive high wages.

A study by the labour market organisation Arbejderbevægelsens Erhvervsråd (AE) claims that industry in the country has not been this competitive since 1995, concluding that the country can compete with the likes of China, Poland and Germany despite the high level of wages. Observers stated that employees at industrial companies create much more value than they cost. Generally speaking, it’s therefore not a problem for industry that workers receive high wages.
