European Union?

Hi Brit,

I’ve been reading up on a subject that most Americans pay little attention to, the EU.  Not that my research is really giving me an understanding of the subject.  So far, I’m coming up with more questions than answers.

For instance, why is there a limit on how many hours a person can work during a given week?  I can see having limits on how much time a person can be required to put in, but if someone wants to work a 60 hour week why is it the Government’s business?

Do y’all really think you can get along with France?

I read somewhere that Brittan “opted out” of that law.  Can countries do that with other EU laws?  If so, can they actually be considered laws, rather than suggestions?
