Re: Sold to Germany??

You've clearly never lived in a country subject to the excesses of EU rules. Hard to hire staff because it's so hard to do layoffs that you can't afford to hire someone unless you're sure you'll need them for years. The US system is too brutal, but the UK gets it about right as far as balance between protecting workers and giving companies the flexibility they need. We don't want to back to the days of the 1970s where the unions think they run the country.
