Here in the US, we have very cheap labor rules. Northern European countries have interesting things like required paid maternity leave for a YEAR! They have health care for everyone; yes, FREE health care for everyone. My experience is from what I have observed from regular visits to Denmark over the last 10 years.

In the USA, your standard of living is up to your employer, basically.
In the USA the minimum wage requires that you need food stamps depending on where you live.

Paying for the higher base standard of living = more expensive film.
