Although there are 45 union construction workers currently unemployed in the council, the city of Aarhus was forced to hire a contractor that employs Polish workers to help put in new pavements because Danish workers would not work for the 125 kroner per hour salary the job paid. “[Danes] are not interested in working for 125 kroner per hour,” said Aarhus 3F spokesperson Niels Eliasen. “A Dane cannot live on that wage.” – Jyllands-Posten
