Labor shortage


We have a labor shortage in Denmark. For example, 80% of the hotels are lacking workforce. Also, there is a shortage of skilled labor. Construction companies are lacking carpenters, masons, painters, plumbers, electricians, etc. The government will meet with the Employer’s Association and the trade unions, to find a solution. Ideas on the table: Bring more skilled labor from other EU states; Keep older people longer; Attract young people to join the workforce earlier and find a way to match the 100,000 unemployed with the job market.
