Nobody is saying that it is okay they just lost their jobs. Knock off the hyperbole. But as a Danish taxpayer, I am more than happy to help pay into the healthcare system, especially for those who have lost their jobs. The overwhelming majority of us are happy to do that and have no desire to return to an American style system (yes...return to an American style system). But we are not paying the unemployment bill, that is funded by the companies, unions, and the employees themselves. The government only steps in when a company goes bankrupt, and in Denmark that means shutting the doors for good, not reorganizing and handing out massive bonuses to the folks that ran the company into the ground. And don't let the American media fool you, our taxes may be high, but when factoring in healthcare and educational costs, I take home a higher percentage of my income here than I did in the States.

EDIT- The Norwegian pilots and cabin crew that were based in Denmark are getting their notification period pay handled by the government because Norwegian declared their Danish subsidiaries bankrupt. There is a lot of anger over that, especially because Norwegian is still alive and receiving government aid from the Norwegian government.

It's not hyperbole. It's a fact. They lost twenty years on the job, and now they're going to be on the dole.

Hey, I'm glad you enjoy living there. To each his own. Different strokes, different folks.

You might want to get that furlough issue worked out though. You might be finding out that you're not going to be "taking home a higher percentage of your income".

Cheers mate.

You sarcastically claimed that it was okay they lost their job because the taxpayer will take care of them, that is hyperbole. I don't see anyone, other than you, claiming that it is okay they lost their job. It stinks for them.

I appreciate your concern, but I don't have to worry about any furlough issues for quite a while.

Do we know how many will lose their jobs? What is SAS' plan moving forward? I guess no one can answer that for at least 12 months till we get a better picture of how the world will look like.

Real shame for the pilots. Real shame for all pilots worldwide.
