Another day in paradise, and the GOOD news is my supervisor informed me that I've managed to hang on to my job at the Copenhagen Mail Center.
Three months ago I was transferred from my old department due to staff cuts (a recurring event in the now market-economy oriented Danish mail services)
At the old place we handled mail manually, but in the new department we use computers which means I can now stay glued to a pre-millennium class computer screen with an average of 1,200 letters pr. hour to be put in the right place, and I need to maintain a 90 % success rate in order to stay employed in this department.
AND I'm supporting
THE DANISH WELFARE STATE!
- A sagging educational system,
- Increasingly useless health care,
- Over-expensive public transport,
- Public service TV and Radio completely indistinguishable from commercial TV and radio,
- Dubious military exploits on behalf of the oil- and gas industries.
And all of it financed by the highest tax rate in the world, officially it's 52% of your income but due to our high wages and the taxation of everything except fresh air and dog poo it would be closer to 60 or 70% for most Danes.
But I'm not complaining.
