Comparing the US, Canada and Europe
Robert Reich compares the above on several metrics. Worker income and disposable income is higher in Canada and Europe. Most of them get free healthcare and subsidized child care. They get better unemployment benefits, more paid leave, paid sick leave and paid parental leave. In the US we work on average 4.6 more hours than Canada, 21% more than the French and 28% more than the German. Canadians and northern Europeans are happier. Yeah, damn those socialists, eh?
