edit: I think I get how you read that wrong now. What I meant is that only 2% is ready for the job market whatsoever.


Then I wonder what kind of pre-requisites the nordic job market got.

It's probably something IT related. Or language. I have yet to meet someone who got hired without knowing Danish :) May be on some high level jobs you can get away with English, but you will not be allowed to clean toilets on a train station at night, without speaking Danish.
And any more or less qualified job is out of the question, if you do not have a Danish paper confirming your qualification. I am not talking about working as a doctor or a pilot, i am talking about being a carpenter or a smith.
Personally i like this system, as it insures close to the same level of quality, regardless of who you are hiring.

Ironically, me too, but things are... different in reality, from what I've seen.

I think 2% seems like an exaggeration, even if every rules you described were enforced.

Foreign educations are accepted of course, but only if they live up to Northwestern European standards, which they rarely do, among those 2% are people with remotely acceptable formal educations.

Reasons for the 98% can include lack of motivation, lack of sociability, cultural differences, no education or sub-par education, no Danish yet, no English (as Armpit says for high level jobs but also for example shop clerks in the bigger cities), trauma, sickness, age, handicap, criminality etc. the reaons can be many. Education and language being the foremost, I would guess, however language courses are free and mandatory. Remember, we are talking about asylum seekers here, not just citizens with an immigrant background (why I posted separate statistics for those).

And yes, as Armpit also writes, our strong labour unions have secured high standards of qualified and well-paid work, like the medieval trade guilds of old which they are a continuation of.
