Denmark - Positive labour market record for foreigners - August 31, 2016

In an analysis from Jobindsats.dk, it was found that foreigners accounted for 25,872 of the 41,381 new jobs created between 2013 and 2015. Danes filled 15,509 of the new positions. The Economic Council of the Labour Movement (Arbejderbevægelsens Erhvervsråd) considered the foreigners’ inroads into the labour market a good thing and called it a success in that it is a sign of better integration of immigrants and their descendants. On the other hand, observers see the risk of growing social dumping.
