Do you even understand the concept of business?

I moved to Switzerland 7 months ago and I have one question, do you understand the concept of business?

The most peculiar thing that I have experienced in Switzerland is the service sector. Why is it so expensive? You don't provide any outstanding service! To be honest, you don't provide even a moderately well one. Restaurants, cafes, cinemas, theaters, and so on don't have a good service.

Do you understand what a "service sector" is? Why don't you have 24/7 stores, restaurants, cafes, at least Starbucks for god's sake?! People, you don't even have night movies!

No stores work on Sundays! A lot of restaurants are closed on Sundays! Most restaurants don't work during the day!

The workers in the service sector are highly overpaid! There is nothing except the public transportation system that makes the city to have a high-quality of living.

Have you ever seen what's happening in other highly-developed countries/cities? Are you really that much arrogant that you don't agree that your country is not even close to having a high-quality of living? Have you ever looked at other countries in order to get something good from them or you are that much single-minded?

No, the Swiss understand the concept of leisure, peace and quiet.

I disagree. I think that workers in the service sector are paid fairy but in most other highly-developed countries are gravely underpaid.
Have you seen the whatís happening in other highly-developed countries/cities? Slums, increasing proportions of society dependent on welfare, falling through the gaps, increasing homelessness and poverty? Are you really that much arrogent that you donít agree that a high quality of living should apply to everyone, not just to rich foreigners?
Boo hoo, poor people arenít forced to work all hours of the day and night for a wage that couldnít sustain them and that means I canít a coffee at 3am. You donít have your own kettle/coffee maker?

Of course they have. That's why they're keeping things just the way they are.

Re: Do you even understand the concept of business?

If you hate it so much why live here? Thank goodness we don't have many Starbucks, that shops are closed on Sundays and as for wages, do you want to work for CHF 1,000 a month?

Seeing you are so concerned about people being overpaid, I assume you will be asking your boss for a massive salary cut?

Re: Do you even understand the concept of business?

Comrade EugeneKolesnikov - we understand the Russian concept of business - steal assets from the state, become very rich, don't actually do anything which could be loosely described as work.

He didn't earn them, he's far too lazy to earn anything.

Rather, they are his 'Welcome back, we missed you (No, we didn't)' gift!
