- the Development in recent days is worrisome, and it is something we see in most countries. In some places with greater negative impact than in Denmark, which among other things is because we have already carried out initiatives with great importance.
- for example, our tripartite agreement on wage compensation that makes it possible for private sector employees to retain their full salaries and jobs, and the big aid package, which has just been presented targeted the self-employed and particularly hard-hit industries. But we are following developments very closely and we are prepared to take further action, says minister for employment Peter Hummelgaard (S) in the press release.

the Figures confirm, unfortunately, that we are in a deep crisis and can not avoid the fall in employment and higher unemployment. It can get really ugly, if we don't keep your hand under the economy, he writes in an analysis.
the chief Economist at the Leaders ' main organisation Nicklas Praefke call it 'violent talk'.
- We will need to do everything we can to keep the hand under the Danish economy, if this crisis is not to take hold, he writes in an analysis of the figures.
chief Economist in Danske Bank Las Olsen writes in his analysis, that the increase on Monday and Tuesday will bring Denmark on the path to a crisis.
