Fuk America. No, seriously fuk their weird concept of freedom and free market and capitalism and everyone fighting for themselves. Look at this, in contrast, and learn and … become jealous! =^.^=
I don’t even know what the working week hours for metal workers are right now, I guess 38. To shave off a full 10 hours from that seems like a radical new concept, does it not? Anyway, it’ll be a big breakthrough in the social structure of Germany. More people with lots of free time. Time to go shopping and growing the economy. And/or going to community colleges and learn new skills. Oh, and of course they are all perfectly insured (incl. their families) and will receive a decent pension. However, just saying this is what you get when you have a strongly unionized and solidaric workforce: More free time, better, healthier people!
Shame on you, Germany! How dare you? That’s really, like, totally un-American. 😮
