this actually sounds pretty good to me!
not sure its enough to make me learn french. also not sure its enough to make me want to move there and have to inhale next to frenchmen. I'll have to give it some more thought.
seriously, the US is the exact opposite. its almost like there is a celebration on how far you can depress US workers' wages, rights and personal time off. we have some of the least amount of time off in the world; probably worst in the developed world. corporations are 'people' (how absurd!) and they are always given the upper hand. we even have companies forcing you (since you have no choice) to 'agree' to binding arbitration, which is a bought and paid for NON-court that gets to judge your grievance against a company. you don't even get what's left of US justice; you get what a corporation thinks you deserve.
the US is fucked. we are burning thru our advantages - what we once had, that is. I wish we had a bit more of france's views toward workers and fairness. something in the middle would be great, you know! (dreaming on; know it won't happen).
