Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This study is an analysis of the challenges that the traditional Danish labour market model is facing. The analysis consists of three parts: the first part will focus on the national challenges, while the second part will look at the supranational challenges and finally, the third part will present a case, i.e. the current labour conflicts in the airline industry, which has recently been featured in Denmark. Overall, these three perspectives form the basis for further discussion of how the Danish labour market model operates in the modern global labour market. The analysis is theoretically founded on Guy Standing The Precariat: The New Dangerous Class (Standing 2014), while the empirical basis includes representative sources related to each part of the analysis. Furthermore, a qualitative, semistructured interview with Bent Greve, professor at Roskilde University’s Department of Social Science and Globalization, serves as scientific justification throughout the overall analysis. The report concludes that despite challenges at various levels, the Danish labour market model is still offering a favourable framework for the interests of the Danish employers as well as employees. Furthermore, it is concluded that the Danish model is effective, when compared to the resistance against companies such as Ryanair, shown in the resistance level upon the launch in Copenhagen Airport. However it must be regarded as a heavy blow to the Danish labour market, if Ryanair succeeds in evading the Danish labour market conditions.
