Can a one strata federal Europe be taken seriously? The answer appears to be a disquieting "no". The stark social and political ideological contrasts between the Southern and Northern members could be seen from the start. The comparative ethical values and even cultural behaviour patterns spoke of disaster, at least to those who looked beyond the ambitious - and some would say, foolhardy, power game. Europe has always been a bureaucrats dream based on visions of honeycombs of well financed structures and pampered personnel with platinum expense accounts. Everyone´s dream of jackpot and indirect leadership of their unachievable local one. The once avoidable mirage has come home to roost and a split level, cost effective, centralised system of government appears to hold the only sustainable answer.
Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy, as seen on the main contribution to the European economy, Germany, Britain and France, have little idea of the nature of wealth creation in conjunction with a slope of unbridled UN request to borrow or steal to cover the resulting hole senseless spending and high-profile political corruption. What's worse, decades of socialist ideological war against entrepereneurial efforts made weary and triangular employers to capitulate and destroy thier efforts releluctantly life. In Spain, at least, although it was probably the same in Greece, Judgment of hard work with the claims of the "lucky" employees and cunning lawyers avoid reconciliation and get the door open court to force the employer to continue to pay to complete the process.
Result - bankruptcy or closure. In many cases, employees claim thousands in pre-court refusing to budge, whereas in reality because of the amount can be no more than a few hundred that the employer in any way willing to pay. The trick is to stick to the requirements, even if the employer to prove them to be false. The goal is to wage throughout the legal process, which lawyers and staff share. During this time, the employer faces legal costs, loss of work effort, and ultimately the payment of wages and massive social benefits. Some employees only five weeks of employment and short contracts end up with thousands of euros to invest in real estate, they would have never been able to find a deposit for. Immigrants who manage to do the same, often buy their first house in the country with the help of this method.
