European workers value their home life so much that many laws have been placed to protect the life/work harmony. American employees average ten paid holidays per year while our British counterpart’s average twenty-five and our German counterpart’s enjoy thirty. Americans work nearly three months more per year in total hours than Europeans. Over a forty year career a U.S. citizen will work ten years longer than a European citizen. Europeans, by law, can only work a maximum of forty-eight hours per week and many countries enacted lower maximums for their residents.
If you are struggling believing these numbers, don’t take my word for it, go ahead and look it up. You don’t have to live in Europe or work for a European company to live like a European; the choice is yours and always has been. You can change your life today. Dust off your resume and start looking for different options. If you are good at what you do there are always better companies to enlist. There are other options like starting your own business, consulting, and real estate investment. America is the land of the free and home of the brave, so live free and be brave.
