I am an ordinary dane
I work at a factory where we produce food, sliced cold meats and sausages

we are around 300 employees
I have no education, and has worked there for 10 years.
I earn the equivalent of $ 42 per hour
I pay 46% taxes
but then a tax deduction of $ 1400 per month

all the workers at my workplace earn the same
next we also get 12% of our pay to spend a holiday for 5 weeks a year
it is about $ 8000 for the 5 weeks

a year ago I had hernias and had to operate
I received full pay during the 14 days I had to go home
and the actual surgery I pay over the tax.

I will say that I probably belong in the lower to middle middle class here in Denmark.

we have clean water clean air and a really really good police always nice and helpful
never violent for no reason

one of the only thing that now is a little
bad in our country is that many of the Middle Eastern
immigrants are doing more and more violence and trouble.
many of them almost hate Denmark, then I just do not understand why they want to be here and not just go to there homecontry
it is the 5% who destroys it for all the others ... sad

I love my country and the way we help each other
I have nothing against paying much in taxes
when we get a lot for our money
free medical care
free education + you get money for it
