Law supporters claim the island could become the world’s top rare earth producer if it wasn’t because of the tight restrictions the government has on the exploitation of its natural resources. They argue Greenland, with a population of only 55,000, would benefit from foreign workers, as there are simply not enough nationals able to help developing mines in the country.A new version of the current mining legislation would include concessions to the unions on holiday and disability pay. It would also strengthen requirements to hire locals whenever possible make companies pay foreigners at least the equivalent of Greenland’s minimum wage.
