Working in the Czech Republic versus Working in the USA

According to a new report by the International Trade Union Confederation, it's worse to be a worker in the USA than in the Czech Republic.  Interestingly enough, Slovakia got a higher grade than the CR.

The USA got a country grade of 4, which is explained as follows:

Systematic violation of rights
Workers in countries with the rating of 4 have reported system
atic violations. The government and/or companies are engaged
in serious efforts to crush the collective voice of workers putting
fundamental rights under continuous threat.

The Czech Republic got a "2"

Countries with a rating 2 have slightly weaker collective labour
rights than those with the rating 1. Certain rights have come
under the repeated attack by governments and/or companies
and have undermined the struggle for better working conditions

(Thanks to "Occasional Links and Commentary" for making me aware of this report.)
