Can we suppose a major aspect of that discrepancy in the US is due to the high ratio of women in the workplace versus other countries where typical US
types of jobs are mostly filled by men? Yes, many of women in those countries have jobs, but not the type with benefits.
But without a doubt the US lags behind, if we were to compare paid time off from work (vacations/holidays) across the Western countries, we would
find a huge disparity there also. And that would be a more accurate portrayal of how the American worker has been rooked for decades.
Isn't it a shame that about every country that you can name that was defeated or reduced to rubble during WWII has bettered the US in about every
category of what is considered a "modern" world? What went wrong? Better phrased, who led us wrong, surely we can't blame any one political party?
Maybe the people Eisenhower and JFK warned us about?
