Welfare fraud among immigrants

As I reported earlier, a city councilman from the city I live in has opened up a discussion of an apparently propensity of some immigrants to take advantage of the the generous social benefits Denmark provides those in need. An earlier case in the same city make that clear, too (from DR):

More than a third of immigrant women on unemployment benefits in Odense are continually calling in sick, which has a detrimental effect on their education in Danish, job training and job offers, says Berlingske Tidense (a Danish Paper - Henrik).

But a pilot project has turned up, that of 20 women who called in sick, 17 turned up quite well after an investigation.

A survey from last year points out, that in the vicinnity of 30-40 per cent of the unemployed immigrant women are calling in sick.
