Denmark - Wage report reveals poor payment of arts and humanities - December 31, 2015

An analysis carried out by the think-tank Kraka for Finans shows that for certain groups of highly-educated workers, there is only a modest difference between their salary level and that of an unskilled worker. The analysis reveals that those with an arts education on average only make about 1,000 kroner, or 134 euro, more (before tax) per month than an unskilled worker. It also shows that a humanities graduate with a five-year university education often only earns 1,800 kroner (241 euro) a month more than someone who took an apprenticeship and vocational education in a trade.
