I'm less confused by the concept of telling people "you can come to our country for x months and not work" than "you can come and live in our country indefinitely, but you can't work until you've completed this additional arcane piece of process".

(Ignoring the case of "you can come and live in out country whilst you have a job with $CORP")

Apparently in the UK system the work permit is something given to the employer rather than the worker -- it's a thing from the government saying it's OK to appoint some random foreigner to a particular post. The worker can only get a suitable work visa if they've got a job lined up where there's been a work permit issued. Also, if you have a permanent resident visa you can do any random job just like a citizen.

This seems reasonably sane, so perhaps it's just the US system that's confusing you?

That sort of system seems to make more sense to me. That's not to say that I like it, but...
