Hey friends.

I would like to tell about some more practical things like payment and labor union.

There is no laws about least-payments in Denmark

Vacation

In Denmark you have the right for 5 weeks of vacation due to legislation but most collective agreements ensure the right for 5 more days of vacation. In many cases with full salary.

Paid sick days

When sick most Danes are ensured 100% full salary in the first many days due to the collective agreements. As an example the collective agreement for the industry ensures 9 weeks of full salary if case of sickness. Without a collective agreement you may follow the state provisions for payment during sick days with a lower payment.

Extra saving for pension

All pensionists receive the state pension but the collective agreements ensure an extra saving for pension at 11-12% of the salary each month for most Danes - on the top of the state pension. This ends up as a substantial sum after a long life on the labour market.

Paid leave for new mothers and fathers

For new mothers and fathers the collective agreements ensure about 6 months of leave with salary. An example is the collective agreement for employees in shops. It ensures the mother full salary during 14 weeks for the new mother leave plus 4 weeks leave before giving birth. The father has the right of 2 weeks of leave. All this with 100% paid leave. Further the parents have the right to 13 weeks of parents leave with salary. Thereby the collective agreements ensure new parents better conditions than provided by the state.

Hey Friends.

Eftersom jeg jo har fået et job, skal jeg jo have styr på deres lønforhold og deres fagforeninger, så det vil jeg skrive lidt om her, hvis i er lidt nysgerrige.

I USA får man ikke lige så mange penge i løn, inden for de forskellige brancher, som man gør i Danmark. Hvis man f.eks. arbejder inden for fastfoodbranchen, kan man ikke leve for lønnen, men det kan man godt i Danmark.

I USA for man ca. 50 kroner i timen som er ca. 8 dollars det må man ikke, da deres mindste løn i USA er på ca. 85 kroner i timen (15 dollars) men der er stor debat om, der skal være en mindsteløn eller ej, så der er nogle steder, at de har det og andre steder de ikke har det som f.eks. i fastfoodbranchen. I Danmark er mindstelønnen på ca. 60 kroner (10 dollars) der er mindre end i USA, men ca. 90% af befolkningen i Danmark for meget mere i løn.

De fagforeninger der er i USA i dag, vil gerne befolkningen det bedste, men det er ikke det de gør. De får færre penge i løn, og de har ikke særlig meget ferie.

I Florida prøver politikerne at få de offentlige ansatte, ud af fagforeningerne da de ødelægger deres politik, det hjælper lidt da de fleste unge ikke gider ind i en fagforening mere, da det ikke gavner dem. I USA er man missundlig på Danmark i det arbejdsmæssige, altså at vi har mere ferie og får flere penge for de samme ting vi laver f.eks. fastfoodbranchen.

​Hey Friends.

I would like to tell you a little about the Danish opinion to immigration and the EU, because we had a school project about it, so I thought I would tell about it to you guys.

I will start with EU, if you guys don’t know EU means the European Union. The Union exists of almost all the European countries.

It started with six countries, France, West Germany, Belgium, Italy, Netherland and Luxemburg, made the forerunner, Det Europæiske Kul- og Stålfælleskab, in 1951. Later on, it made up the European Financial Community, the reason for the small “union” was. That after second world war had weakened a lot of Europe and then the six countries wanted to work together and by that prevent war. The idea was that people and articles could cross the frontiers.

Great Britain, Ireland and Denmark tried to get in the “union” in 1961, but their membership first got admitted around ten years later. It didn’t happen because France didn’t want to work together with Britain and Denmark ended by having to suffer from it. By that they didn’t get their membership, so they decided to make a little helping organization in the North. The organization was given up on, so Denmark tried to get into the “union” again.

Denmark had for a while a little trouble with the things you had to have to be a part of the union. So it ended up with 4 things the Danish population didn’t want to change/nobody can change. The four things are: the kind off money they pay with. They don’t want to change the Danish krone out with euros. The union citizenship. They don’t want to change out the Danish citizenship out with a union citizenship. The military. Denmark is not a part of decisions and operations there is lead by the union. And at last the immigration policy. They don’t want to be a part of the asylum- and immigration policy.

But others than that Denmark don’t have any bad things about the European Union. And they are a part of it by now.

The immigration part.

If you are in Denmark with or without a residence permit, then you can make an application about staying in Denmark. But you can only apply for asylum if you are in Denmark. If you try on a Danish embassy or so you will get denied.

There are some different terms.

  • 1.You must be included a FN convention refugee. You can get that by having a well-founded fear of being chased by your race, religion, nationality, your relationship with your social group or your political opinion and you are out of the country where you are citizen.
  • 2.You can get a protection status, if you risk death, get tortured, inhumanly or degrading treatment or punishment, if you return to your home country.

There is a term more and a lot of other information on:

hope you could use this to something, ahah.

Hey Friends.

Jeg er jo flyttet til Florida, og jeg har været her i noget tid nu, så nu har jeg tænkt over, at jeg lige ville skrive hvad USA’s holdning er til, at mennesker fra andre lande er kommet her til landet. Og hvad deres holdning er til EU som jeg jo kommer fra.

USA har mange immigranter i landet, det prøver Donald Trump at stoppe, ved at gøre det svære for indvandre at komme ind i landet f.eks. at gøre det dyrere, og man skal have flere forskellige ting, som et Green Card og sådan noget. Han prøver også at smide dem ud. Men indtil videre, er der stadigvæk mange immigranter i USA.

Ikke alle er enige med hvad Donald Trump mener med det. Der er nogle der ikke har noget imod det, da det er billiger arbejdskraft. Også er der dem, der bare ikke har noget imod det.

USA og EU har et godt forhold. De hjælper hinanden med forskellige ting. De hjælper f.eks. hinanden med penge, og med at hjælpe hinanden hvis de har nogle problemer. Sådan har det været i mange år. Men nu vil Donald Trump, lukke forhandlingen med EU og Paris. Det er der ikke særlig mange der gerne vil, det er næsten kun Donald Trump der vil det, så folk prøver at stoppe ham.

Det er de holdninger, de har til de forskellige ting.

I was looking for a job in (my town), so I could earn some money like every other teenage girl. The case is that I am an exchange student, so I can’t speak any kind of Danish. I don’t think it is a big problem, because the more I talk the more I will learn. And already by the time I’ve sent this I can probably talk just a bit Danish.

While I was looking around and trying to find a job for me, I fell over your pizza place and I just thought that would be a good idea for me.

If I get the job I could in the start just be cleaning, and after a while, so I would be better at Danish, I could start helping with serving, taking phone calls and orders, and maybe even make pizza someday.

Before when I lived in Florida I had a job at a pizza place in Disneyland, so you can kind off say that I know what I am going into. I loved I really did, and I hope I will find the same happiness in your store.

I am a kind-hearted person, 15 years old, score good in school, especially in English 😉, love being outside, learn about other people and make new friends.

I hope I will get the job, but if I don’t I hope you will get another very hard working happy co-worker.

Yours faithfully,

Alison Carter


Hope you enjoyed.

Hey Friends.

Now that I have moved to Denmark I also had to get some different things, like a consent form and other important stuff and I will like to tell you about that.

Now that I’m less than 18 years old, my parents had to do at confirm before I could move, because it off course cost money to go and I’m not an adult yet. The school I’m going to also had to confirm that it wanted to help me having a proper residence in Denmark.

Before I could move I had to be taken in on the gymnasium I am going to. That means that I had to write to the gymnasium and get in before I could move. And I couldn’t just go to any gymnasium it had to be approved by the Danish governmental authority.

Now that I’m going to a gymnasium it also had some different requirements for getting in. Either that I’m with an exchange organization, I have begun high school in Florida and continue in Denmark or I will begin in gymnasium and continue my education in high school when I get back.

Before I could go I also had to be speaking either Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, English or German, but now that I’m from Florida I speak fluent English.

It is of course not free being in another country, so I must pay 950.94 dollars every month I’m here, or I had to have the money before I left. So now that I’m here for 11 months I have to pay 950,94x11, which is 10460.34 dollars.

As a student I can maximum stay here for a year, or less.

Before you move to another country you probably need a new passport, because a residence permit is only guilty until 3 months before the expire date.

If you would like to go to Denmark as well these two websites: https://www.nyidanmark.dk/da/Du-vil-ans%C3%B8ge/Studie/Grund--og-ungdomsuddannelser and https://workplacedenmark.dk/da/regulations-on-posting/residence-and-work-permit can help you dealing with the problems and might also answer some of your questions.

Hey Friends.

Jeg har haft lidt udfordringer, ved at flytte til USA, da jeg skulle have nogle ting, for at kunne bo i landet.

Jeg skulle først skaffe mig et visum, som er et kort man skal have, for at måtte være i USA, i mere end 3 måneder. Alisons forældre snakkede med en advokat, for at jeg kunne få et visum. Det tog et par måneder. Det koster ca. 1000 kroner at få et visum.

Jeg er så heldig, at fordi at jeg kun skal være der i et år, så skal jeg ikke have amerikansk statsborgerskab, så det slap jeg for.

Jeg skulle også have fornyet mit pas, da det ville udløbe efter nogle måneder, så det fik jeg gjort på et bibliotek inde i København.

Jeg skulle også udfylde en ESTA-formular, som er et slags spørgeskema, som man kan finde på en amerikansk hjemmeside. Næsten alle spørgsmålene var på dansk, så det var nemt nok, og jeg blev allerede godkendt efter en dags tid. Det koster ca. 77 kroner, så det er billigt da du kan komme på flere rejser i USA, i 2 år.

Jeg har været så heldig, at jeg ikke har skullet finde et sted at bo der ovre, da jeg jo bor hos Alisons forældre. Så jeg har ikke skullet tænkt over bo udgifterne.

Hey Friends.

Today we went to Copenhagen. Not the whole family, but it was me, my “sister” and her mother. And because it is my first time in Denmark we were going to see some off the tourist attractions.

We drove from home about 8 a clock and we were in inner Copenhagen ca. half an hour later. On the go we stopped at McDonalds and got some breakfast, because we woke up a little late and therefore didn’t get any breakfast at home.

We started out by parking the car near Nyhavn. We walked a little to get to Nyhavn, and when we arrived we found a Canal sightseeing boat and we went on a little trip whit it.

We sailed around for about an hour, and saw Nyhavn and its pretty houses, we saw Amalienborg Castle, which is where the Danish Crown family lives. It was sooo pretty, after we sailed past Christiansborg where all the Danish politic is going on. And last but not least we saw the famous statue, The little Mermaid or Den lille Havfrue.

When we got off the boat we went to go look closer at the mermaid. Alma (sister) told me that we could touch her and get a picture taken with her, so I looked really forward to get that.

We walked down to her and I gave Anette (mother) my phone so she could take a picture of the mermaid and me, and a picture with me, the mermaid and Alma.

It was a really nice trip, and I am happy Anette wanted to take us.

Hey Friends.

I går var jeg og ”min søster” som i virkeligheden er Alisons tvillingesøster på Palm Beach. Palm Beach er en del, af den sydøstlige kyst i Florida, så der er en stor flot sandstrand med mange palmer. Vi var på Palm Beach fordi, at jeg gerne vil se noget, af alt det kulturelle der er i Florida, og fordi vi vildt gerne ville på stranden.

Vi tog toget sammen, fra Orlando og hen til Palm Beach, det tog ca. 2 time. Det tog lidt ekstra tid, da vi skulle over en lille bro, da Palm Beach er en lille halvø til Miami, lidt lige som Amar er til København. Da vi skulle til at gå ind på Palm Beach, spurgte jeg Eva om det kostede noget, men det gjorde det ikke. Så vi gik bare der ind og der var vildt smukt.

Vi var der i nogle timer vi badede, spiste is og spillede volleyball med nogle ret pæne drenge. En af drengene kom faktisk også fra Danmark, og er flyttet her hen til Florida. Vi snakkede meget godt sammen. Han fortalte at han surfede meget, vi havde faktisk mange ting tilfælles.

Tiden fløj afsted. Eva kom lige pludselig og sagde at vi skulle hjem, så jeg skrev lyn hurtigt på et stykke papir mit nummer, og jeg nåede at se, at han skrev det ind på hans mobil. Vi skyndte os hent til toget, vi nåede lige at komme ind i det. Det var en vildt dejlig dag, sådan nogle håber jeg, at jeg får nogle flere af.
