We don't pay 50% on personal income tax hehe
People wouldn't be too happy!!
Where tax differs is on labour. If a French company pays its workers $50k in gross salary, they'd pay another $50k on labour taxes.
But yes we don't have private schools only private religious schools like here.
However I'm not sure education is much better in France than in Australia. Probably more equitable though and a lot more easy to manage for working parents 😂
