Here in Denmark, as elsewhere, the armed forces are starting to feel the pinch due to commitments overseas. As such, they have decided to ask volunteers from HjemmevÃ¦rnet (the Danish TA) to apply for mobilisation. Up till now it's mostly HjemmevÃ¦rners with civilian trade qualifications and experience they've been looking for, but recently they have also been looking for suitable people to train as CP operatives. All well and good you say, but......during all pre-mobilsation training (in some cases up to four months) all they get paid is the equivalent of dole money. Strangely enough, they haven't been getting as many applicants as they had hoped for. I wonder why? Is there any other country which expects people to volunteer to go bankrupt?
