Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"The average American works 40% more hours during his life-time than the average European. "Who is better off?" says the article."

Tell me about it!! That's the "American Way (tm)"...which I am seeing more and more creep into Europe. I say: Don't go there...enjoy and appreciate the good quality of life you have here!!

 I see too many households here who have to work two low paying jobs to make ends meet here. Don't be like that.

Amen, indeed. I don't mind to work hard or make long days when necessary, but I've always remained skeptical during my experiences with the American working frenzy. There's a time for work, and a time for relaxation and they should come in a good balance.
