Very interesting article on Switzerland versus the US.

Canada is not as bad as the US but we are not Swiss either. Seems to me we have similar sentiments around guilt and vacation time or a working lunch as the US. We also have similar taxes, though we don’t tax non-residents.

We do have decent parental leave and medical care but our EI system is similar.

Seems that most countries could learn from the Swiss model and we would have lives with more substance to them.
