Not many surprises here, confirming what we already now: the Swiss work force is highly qualified, unemployment is low, no statutory minimum wage (wages are already high enough), and working hours per week are long. Add to that a perfect infrastructure and multi-language abilities across the whole population and you have the European role model right there.
