    Default Danish left/media on 'social dumping'

    Denmark's sort of 'Morning Star', a communist semi daily which supports the Red Greens/Enhedlisten , the most left wing group in the Danish parliament . Note the emphasis on 'social dumping', the section is big and is part of a long term strategy to defend worker's rights and counteract the populist extreme right , long big in Denmark

    Enhedlisten itself, which has maintained around 8%-10% in polls for a long time (much better than the nearest equiv here PBP-Sol) the coalition even has a shadow minister for 'social dumping' http://org.enhedslisten.dk/valg-socialdumping

    In Sweden the issue is raised too, but much less (Social Democrat party statement at start of current gov in 2014) https://www.socialdemokraterna.se/ak...upphandlingar/
    The Left party , allied with Enhedlisten in the Nordic Green Left has just some resolutions . Sweden has a bigger problem with it's extreme right now worryingly (hitting up to 28% in OPs while seemingly peaked in Denmark at less than 20% now ). Of course Denmark is more reactionary on immigration and the populist extreme right DPP has been allowed in the ruling right wing coalition, 'blue block' , but not in the government (they prefer fence sitting) . The point is they need to be strenuously fought/counter-acted, not ignored as was tried in Sweden and hasnt worked . And coming here eventually unless we do likewise (witness the endless mutterings about 'foreigners' since the 1st Tiger and the increasingly worrying reports about racist attacks here )

    As i understand it; the undermining of worker's rights by exploiting migrant labour (one variant/posted workers is employing worker's at their origin country's rates/ conditions https://euobserver.com/social/139599 ) . This of course is a major source of dis-content that the extreme right across Europe including UKIP have tappped into . By taking action against it the extreme right are counter-acted in a non racist way (big thing in Melenchons' campaign for example) and the left is seen not to be asleep as it became over the years unfortunately

    Big in Denmark, Copenhagen city council boycotted RyanAir some time back for social dumping and O Leary left in pique apparently
