124. Funny story
it is against the law to work more than 45 hours per week (for the same employer) in Switzerland. My sister worked there in IT. They would often work more than 45 per week. She did not complain, she was pretty jazzed about her job and ended working late nights. She managed programmers, don't know what her title was, something like program lead or something designing systems to run big applications like the stock market.

anyway, the Swiss police staked out the parking lot at the office where she worked and recorded the license plate numbers, noting when the cars arrived and when they left, and busted the company!

Compare that to our cops, in riot gear, breaking up OWS. If they had been like the Swiss police, there would be no need for OWS. We'd have lives.
