Working for a great remote-first company serves to make me really angry that right-to-work laws exist.

Why the heck can't I earn money in any country I happen to be temporarily in?

I mean, I know 'tax things' is the reason. Brexit has made the problem a million times worse for UK residents.

But its just...so stupid. Borders are silly. Nationalism is silly. Let people do stuff anywhere pls.

I can't go on a 'working holiday' where I visit a country for, say, a couple of weeks. Work on some week days, take a holiday on other days, do stuff in evenings.

I did that in Edinburgh one year during Fringe and it was great, but I can't do that outside of the UK without significant effort.

I strongly dislike nationalism. Brexit has made me hate borders and nationalism and my own country more.
