Twice as many Danes would prefer to receive help from a private job agency than council-run job centres, according to a report from the business lobby Dansk Erhverv that is due out this week. Jakob Tietge, a spokesperson for Dansk Erhverv, said the findings reflect that private-sector hiring companies have a more pragmatic view of the unemployed. “You’re not a case with a problem, you’re a resource,” he said.

A representative for the nation's job centres said biased media coverage had affected people’s opinion of the bureaus. – Politiken
