I never realized how bad the country is until I moved to another. Here you can work a full-time minimal wage and afford to live by yourself, as long as you keep to a strict budget. Plus you're garenteed your hours, and every day that your off sick in full. Even if you're sick for a really long time, you at least get some money per day. And after working for a year I get 20 days of paid vaction. In america, if you work a full-timeĀ  minimum wage job, they can cut your hours if they don't need you, and you usually have to work a year just to get a single day of paid vaction. And even if you don't have a college degree, if you work hard and do a good job, you will eventually get promoted.

The law system in america is too slow. Whenever there is a problem that ugently needs to be fixed by the government, it can take month, even years for that to happen.

Healthcare is just horrible in amercia. I pay roughly 120 dollars a year, not per month, and that's for a good health plan. And I pay about 7% for all medical expenses. No american insurance company could even come close to that.

The education system is a joke too. The kids should start learning another language at a much earlier age. The math I learned in college is at the same level what kids in high school learn here. And the cost for college in america is insane. You shouldn't have to spend the next 20-30 of your life paying off student loans. Here tuition costs about 700 dollars a year. Anyone that has finished school can apply for a college of there choice. They make the first year harder to weed out the students that don't belong there. Not base it on whether our not they did good in high school or if they were a memeber of the swim team.

America can be a wonderful place if you have the money for it, but it steps on the poor, and tries its hardest to keep them poor.

    European healthcare plans are awesome... unless you get sick.

    Jobs in Europe are awesome.... unless you actually want to go buy something.

    Schools in the US? Yup. We need help there. No doubt.

    But yeah, glad you're gone. You made no attempt to fix things while you were here and you're nothing more than a leech on society's *** where you are now. Good for you.

    I didn't really see anything wrong with amercia, while I was living there. It was only when I moved. I work full-time and I have gone to school to help learn the language. I don't get how that makes me a leech?

    Some Americans are such judgmental ****** when you criticize America. It's ridiculous. I'm glad you got to see America from a foreign perspective.

    Honest issues. Teaching little of the outside allows those that would benefit most from change little knowledge of alternatives.
