The article offers information on flexicurity, a program which combines light regulation with a generous unemployment and adult-education system for outsourced workers in Denmark. Danish employers are free to outsource or lay off workers. Laid-off employees will collect up to 90 percent of their income for six months. And before they get a single unemployment check, most are being shuttled into a six-week retraining program. The benefits program is financed by a stiff income tax.
