It should be business demand, which determines whether foreigners can get greencard in Denmark, said DI.
Greencard scheme criteria does not match the industry demands with highly skilled foreigners.
That is the verdict of Danish Industries, which recommends the government to add a criterion of the scheme points system, so foreigners who have skills that are in short supply – such as engineers – will be easier to get greencard to Denmark.
The announcement comes after the publication of a thesis at Roskilde University, shows that 7 out of 10 greencard-holders are either unemployed or in unskilled jobs.
According to the report, it means that the system has failed for approximately 2,100 highly skilled foreigners, writes Politiken.
Opportunity for more points
as it is now based criteria in greencard scheme scoring primarily on education, work experience and English skills.
But you must do hope to get more of greencard-holders out of a job that matches their qualifications, according to labor market consultant at DI Claus Aastrup Seidelin add one more criteria:
“You could screw the system follow that, if you come to Denmark with skills that are demanded in the labor market, so you get some more points compared to those who belong to the areas where the need for labor is not as acute.”
Greencard scheme was introduced in 2008 to attract skilled foreign labor to Denmark and to help industry in global competition. And even though one of the DI can see gaps in the system, it is believed not that it be discontinued.
“It’s super important to have attracted the high-skilled foreigners, because the clean signal in terms of a competitive barometer relative to other countries, and because it creates growth,” said Claus Aastrup Seidelin.
Government prepares to embark on a reform of the autumn.
