And one of the reasons many their exports are almost always late or promised delivery dates are 2-3months behind everyone elses. But... it's utopia... no? I'm sure they'd welcome you, right?Uh, no in Germany, by law, unions get 50% Board of Director representation at mid to large size companies (33% at small ones). They have capital controls. And very high taxes (not only do they have a 45% tax rate, it's a very broad based rate and on top of that, they have VAT). They also have mandated 6 weeks of vacation. Also, their manufacturing workers make like $16 more an hour in wages and benefits than ours do.
Germany is the anti-thesis of idiotic rightwing policy.
