THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC PER ANDERSEN may, like most of the other social democrats, not be happy about the fall of social beneficiaries (Folkebladet January 3). I can simply not understand that.

Since the spring the number of welfare recipients fell by 4,000 people. That happens after an extended period when the number had grown. It is encouraging and even Social Democrats should agree on that. It gives evidence to the fact that it makes a difference, of course, when it’s worth more to work.

Exactly as we ensure the social benefits cap.

Per Andersen writes further that the government merely moves people to other public services instead. But such a claim does not make sense since we can see that from April to September there are in total 17,000 fewer people on public benefits. At the same time we have seen many examples of how companies have received far more applications than before, after the social benefits cap became effective.

This fall is of course connected also with the fact that it goes better in the labor market. But this alone cannot explain the positive news. Because the number of people on social benefits, education benefits or integration benefits has just fallen when the social benefits cap was adopted.

It testifies that social benefits cap works even though the Social Democrats will not face it.

While we, the others, are so pleased that there are fewer people on social benefits, Per Andersen and other Social Democrats as well must soon decide whether they will approve the social benefits cap. So far it has not been possible to get a clear answer.

There are certainly good arguments for joining.

    JCI Horsens International with Horsens Folkeblad and supported by Horsens Kommune is behind the project Horsens in English.

    Horsens is an international city � with around 115 different nationalities living here. There are many reasons why people leave their home countries and become expats. It is to use the opportunities created by the common market in Europe, finding new job, going for studies or maybe to be with other family members who are already living abroad.

    Whatever your reasons, you mustn�t live in vacuum, even if you don�t know the language of this country. You need the information about the life around you.

    Horsens in English is an online project aiming to give newcomers access to the information about the town, to catch you up on current events and things that are happening around. We would like to give you more knowledge about Horsens, its most popular sights, people and organisations etc. We want to be not just the mirror reflecting important events for the area we serve, but would like to make the community dialogue, to share the stories of local people and internationals. In fact, Horsens in English is a voice that truly echoes the life of our community, to make you feel at home.
