In regard to our questions we preformed qualitative, semi structural interviews. We picked people at random to interview at both private companies and public organisations that had or had not extra economical compensations except what the social insurance office paid during parental leave....

The results in economical compensation between the public and private labour market shows that there is a difference between those two parts. (Less)
