Reading on this forum, it seems like most Americans hate labor laws, government mandate laws, hate when the government mandates any paid days off, socialism, against national healthcare, etc. unlike in Europe?

People being against socialism, what's their reason? Any of them low-income?

nope I would love to hire and teach a helper my trade but the workmans comp,unemployment ins and liability ins plus pages of other regulations make that impossible,not to mention obamacare in the future. Heck I as the self employed owner of my co can't afford to give myself all that crap let alone a freaking helper getting paid to learn my trade.Glad retirement is just around the corner I can't take another regulation,soon carpentry will be outlawed or done on the sneak under cover of darkness.

I know a few Republican union members who trash unions left and right, when I ask them why don't they take a non union job or work at a non union company they shut up real fast.

No it didn't.
