A new study shows that Protestant countries have higher employment rates than non-Protestant countries. This is because of the Protestant work ethic, which makes subjects work hard, even on occasion where they do not want to. UK researchers found that the UK, the US and Nordic countries were among those with employment rates as much as 6% higher than countries where other religions are practiced by the largest proportion of the population. According to a study of 80 countries, published in the American Journal of Economics and Sociology, female employment rates are also about 11% higher in Protestant countries. ( 10/1/07)
