Ralph Nader’s WWII Rap

Ralph Nader’s WWII Rap

“So here’s my rap on winners and losers in World War II. We won World War II, okay? Germany, Italy, I mean, they lost it, right? So watch this. In Germany and Italy, they have four weeks or more paid vacation, everybody, regardless of whether they’re unions or not. They all have universal health insurance, everybody, regardless of whether they’re members of unions. They have paid maternity leave, paid family sick leave, paid daycare. Okay? They have higher lower wages–that is, the bottom third have higher minimum wages in Germany and Italy, as well as the rest of Western Europe. Right? They have cheaper and better public mass transit. Okay? They have better pensions, alright? And they have tuition-free higher education, right? We have none of these in the United States 65 years after World War II. None. None..”
