I want Britain to aim for the social and economic balance that thrives in Nordic nations.
As opposed to all other forms of social security in Denmark, unemployment insurance is voluntary. Thus, you are not automatically insured against unemployment.
An unemployment insurance policy is taken out from an unemployment insurance fund, also known as an \”A-kasse\”. These are private associations that are associated with trade unions and other professional organisations.
Most unemployment insurance funds are affiliated to specific trade unions, but there are also a number of cross-industrial unemployment insurance funds. It is possible to become a member of an unemployment insurance fund without being a member of the associated trade union.
If that\’s the way you want it Polly. Moves us back to the system of what, pre-1945?
