I fully agree with you that we do end up paying more taxes and social
charges in most European countries compared with the US. I live and work in
France, and here's a rough idea of what the situation is like here :
- Depending on your income and family situation you may end up paying 60%
of your gross salary in social security, unemployment contribution, taxes
However, on the bright side, here are the benefits of working in France:
- 5 weeks of paid vacation
- 35 hour week
- Best healthcare system in the world (according to a recent WHO study)
- Employees are far more protected than in the US or the UK
- If I no longer have a job, I will receive unemployment benefits (80% of
my salary) for 9 months, 60% for the next 9 months and 3000 francs/month
for life (even if I don't work at all).
- French cuisine (just kidding!)
