"Angry Bear compares the pensions given in different countries. In Luxembourg workers get 102% of their average pay. In Austria, Hungary, Spain and Turkey you get 75%," writes Dave, "We get 36-38%" Americans suffer from "vacation deficit disorder" while "across the Atlantic the EU...requires a minimum of four weeks paid leave each year...No wonder Republicans hate Europe. Europe is setting an example. All we have to do is see it." (Seeing the Forest)
