@teaoverlord: Haha, it's fine. You're correct, I'm just using the socialism/communism thing to illustrate my parents ignorance. Switzerland is Capitalist, a good one at that, but we have a hella social safety net that works for us. I don't mind my higher taxes because of all the wonderful opportunities of offers me. My grandfather just assumes all of a Europe is communism. (Also, my mother still thinks Sweden and Switzerland are the same thing.)
On topic, we have a very good minimum wage that works very well.
