This isn’t because Burger King is nicer in Denmark. It’s the law, and the US is actually the only so-called “developed” country that doesn’t mandate jobs provide a minimum amount of paid vacation, sick leave, or both.

Also, as someone else pointed out, this is above and beyond even what the government regulations require, and this is due to Denmark still having labor unions that have any power at all.

Look at this two years old discourse I’m commenting on

Anyway:

This isn’t because Burger King is nicer in Denmark. It’s the law,

No it isn’t. We have no legal minimum wage. I could go work for $9 an hour if I wanted to.

The reason is that we are so unreasonably rich that nobody would ever take a job for $9 an hour.
