Only Job Creators are deserving of “vacation” time. /

2 Eclectic Cyborg  Fri, Nov 16, 2012 8:31:59am

At my particular job we do get vacation days, but we do NOT get sick days. If you need time off due to illness, you have to use some of your paid time off. Therefore I always try to keep at least a week (5 work days) banked for that reason alone.

My department has been short staffed for awhile so there’s plenty of incentive to work extra hours vs. taking time off.

Also I’ve been wanting to go visit my dad in Vegas but I don’t have the money yet so I’ve been saving my days for that trip too.

Not only are we being reduced to serfdom it appears many of us are happy to be serfs.

When you’re on commission like I was, and expect to be again, you really can’t take a long vacation, because you lose too much money when you’re not selling.

Americans like to talk about (or be told about) Democracy but, when put to the test, usually find it to be an 'inconvenience.' We have opted instead for an authoritarian system disguised as a Democracy. We pay through the nose for an enormous joke-of-a-government, let it push us around, and then wonder how all those assholes got in there.
