Many young Danes graduate the gymnasium (High School) this summer. Most are looking for a gap year. In the past you got such a job by going from employer to employer with your CV so they could call you once they needed an extra worker.
But not any more. They have to visit each shop every day until there is a vacant place to work because the small shops do not have the security required to store CV in their back room.
The GDPR rules require that you are able to log who accesses the information on the CV and a paper in a folder in a back room does not fulfill the requirements. Sure they can hire a lawyer or programs like https://www.hellotalent.com/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">HelloTalent to store them in but the prices are too high for a business with less than 50 employees as the cost per year cannot exceed DKK 1,000 due to the high burden of taxes put upon firms located inside Denmark.
Larger firms like Google and Apple has decided to pull out of Denmark when it comes to placing hosting centers in Denmark. They recognize that Danish employees will be too expensive now where the firms have to apply to the new GDPR rules - especially when other countries like Ireland and a bunch of countries from the eastern part of Europe has decided to be less strict with upholding GDPR rules.
