The invitation: Release the danes ' holiday pay as crisis counseling

As the crisis counseling to businesses and fyringstruede danes proposes several parties now, that the government open the bag with the many billions of danes ' holiday pay which stands frozen. It writes the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten on Tuesday.

the Organization for small and medium-sized enterprises, SMVdanmark, believe that layoffs can be avoided if the withheld holiday pay to be brought into play: "It is obvious that the three weeks vacation pay, which is frozen already, making more benefit in 2020 than three weeks before we have to retire," says deputy Jacob Brandt.

Prime minister Mette Frederiksen urged last week that "there are compensated and charged to vacation, if possible". 2020 is the year where the holidays act changed, and where the state imposes a freezing, five weeks ' holiday for all until retirement age. The transition year means that many danes already pushed feriekontoen.

Several parties therefore demands that the government investigate how you can free up some of the holiday pay in order to counteract coronakrisen.
New Borgerliges party leader, Pernille Vermund, says that 'one would not pay them to people, because you were afraid of overheating. We are now in a completely different situation.'

It provides professor of economics Bo Sandemann Rasmussen her right in.
"It is a tvangsopsparing. For the individual it will probably be popular to give the free.

Samfundshensynet also speaks in detail for than against, that one makes it," he says and refers to the economic crisis, which threatens the.

minister for Employment Peter Hummelgaard is not negative:

'We do not deny anything in advance – not even to look at the saved feriemidler,' he writes.
