The Danish government and three political parties have concluded an agreement on the framework for the platform economy in Denmark. -The right steps are now being taken towards automatic reporting to the Danish tax authorities and more funds for tax control, says LO?s Vice-President, Nanna Højlund.
The company behind Hilfr, a Danish online platform for cleaning services, has signed a collective agreement with the United Federation of Danish Workers.
-The new strategy for the sharing economy is a good step towards making platform companies report to tax authorities. But we?re not quite there yet. It should be mandatory - not voluntary - to pay taxes
In the past, day labourers lived with the constant uncertainty of not knowing if they could find enough work to feed the family. But, eventually, workers united to stop such conditions in Denmark. And this is how it should remain - also when it comes to the digital labour market of the future.
