This week, a sign was placed at the entrance to a popular Copenhagen restaurant: “Granola is closed due to lack of staff.”
Denmark suffers from a severe labor shortage. In Skåne, 65,000 people are unemployed.
– Given the difference, it’s odd that more Swedes aren’t looking for a job here, says Leif Thingtved, the owner of the restaurateur behind the sign.

According to Leif Thingtved, unemployed people from Skåne must now take advantage of a golden opportunity to travel across the Sound to job vacancies in Denmark.
