    Like I said while worse than many European countries our overall workers rights and unionization protections should put us above other “light red” countries.

      You are there with United Kingdom, Greece, Venezuela, Oman…

      It is not just Saudi Arabia in this category.

      Dude, you have not totally abolished slavery, workers right fare better in the Balkans. Yes, that’s a dark angle of USA right now. It does not mean it is a third world country, just that on that metric, it should score much better given its economic status.

        I’ve done the mistake of opening his profile. This guy calls “aliens” the immigrants 😅

        He is probably just having hard time coping with stats that measure something more useful than economy or weapons and realizing that maybe USA are not an example

            Technically. But it’s definitely not polite. It’s a bit like “retard” in that it used to be the terminology but it was used derogatorily so often that that connotation took over.

            I’m also non native but I always hear it only from right wing people so I assumed that is at least a bit derogative
