Summary: 

The Danish government reached an agreement with union and business representatives which will help refugees get into the national labour force.

The highlight of the agreement is a new so-called ‘integration basic education’ scheme (integrations-grunduddannelse - IGU), which aims to put refugees in short-term jobs at an apprentice salary level of between 50 to 120 kroner (between 6.7 to 16.1 €) per hour. The IGU jobs can last for up to two years and refugees will also be offered skill development or education courses of up to 20 weeks.
