5 Countries Where You Don’t Have to Work Yourself to Death to Make Ends Meet | Alternet

…and in none of these countries do you have to worry about going bankrupt because of a medical problem.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD makes a study of this sort of thing, ranking countries on quality of life — the “Better Life Index” — based on a number of factors, including work-life balance, safety, health, longevity, and more. Based on that series of data as well as other information, here are some countries that have better work-life balance–either overall, or in individual categories–than we do.

1. Canada: Not perfect, but better than the US.

2. Denmark: Overall champ.

3. Brazil: Vacation heaven.

4. Sweden: World leader in paternity leave.

5. France: Lavishing love on moms.
