Amen to that - at least until I am running things.

The US has a number of agencies to protect employees who would otherwise be helplessly exploited. Admittedly, it can protect a bad employee - but that's taken into consideration by having a history and opportunity to correct the employee having been taken. Employers love to mess with benefits - even statutory ones - and these are civil cases.

Actually, my elder daughter was involved in this kind of law (one of two kids who turned to the dark side and became lawyers). My daughter-in-law is actually on the corporate side of these. I have a feeling, in the latter case, that is what makes her more liberal than I: she see's the sleaze in action. Perhaps to atone.

But, this is all US law - I cannot debate you on the whys and wherefores of the UK system.

Let's both, instead, be glad we don't live in France.
