From Basic Income Conference - Day 2 - Christiansborg - 23 sept 2016. The political party the Danish Red-Green Alliance (Enhedslisten) does not support a universal basic income as it would represent a “gift” of huge proportions to the employers. As to the welfare benefits, the main objective now is to fight against the cuts introduced by the majority of the parliament, not just cash benefits, but also unemployment benefits, flexible jobs (flexicurity) and sickness benefits. The Danish Red-Green Alliance will not support replacing those benefits with a kind of benefit at the level of cash benefits, even though this may come without means test or work requirement, because it would require that people take out private insurances in addition to this. The Danish Red-Green Alliance is, however, open to experiments with basic income.
