people in European countries have much more job security as well as gov. welfare assistance compared to people in the USA? why? how much so?

i mean the US gov. is intentionally creating severe wage competition even to put people out of work who dont want to work for "slave wages" with illegal immigrants? is this the way of the future for Europe too? or why not maybe?

    Why?

    Because a higher percentage of europeans is a member of a trade-union

    and because we don't have first-past-the-post, we have significant leftwing (socialdemocrat, socialist, so more leftwing than the USA-Democrats) parties in parlement

    Americans are afraid of socialism. They would not be so afraid if they could see the benefits.

    I think it’s because Europeans care about their citizens.
