“America is the only country that …”
It’s a not so subtle argument from authority. And no I don’t believe this is a cutesy “did you know” factoid.
Aside from the obvious government navel gazing:
1) it’s highly likely that American mega businesses would support a change along those lines.
2) at many margins such a thing does not matter at all. Wages are higher absent vacation offerings than otherwise. It’s not clear why any particular compensation bundle is “superior” to others. I CAN make an argument for how limiting contract options can be welfare improving but that short post does not attempt it, rather it assumes it.
3) Did you know America is the only country that has so many citizens flying its flag on their homes?
