...according to an Indian International student.
Many Americans are not aware of the contrast. I expect several people to reply with a "Yeah, but..." bit of crap, but there's just no question that America is .... exceptional. And in a good way. But if you really must disrespect America the author of the article has a few bad things to say about it, like the people who work in stores here are not poor enough to want to give you really good personal service.Strong ethics — everyone has a lot of integrity. If someone cannot submit their completed assignment in time, they will turn in the assignment incomplete rather than asking for answers at the last minute. People take pride in their hard work and usually do not cheat. This is different from students from India and China as well as back home in India, where everyone collaborates to the extent that it can be categorized as cheating.”
...An almost-classless society: I’ve noticed that most Americans roughly have the same standard of living. Everybody has access to ample food, everybody shops at the same supermarkets, malls, stores, etc. I’ve seen plumbers, construction workers and janitors driving their own sedans, which was quite difficult for me to digest at first since I came from a country where construction workers and plumbers lived hand to mouth.
