2 weeks

2 weeks

After 7 1/2 years of working for the same firm they finally got the bright idea to give me TWO WEEKS VACATION! WHOO HOO!!!

I'd rather have a raise.

I get 4 weeks but that is combined vacation/sick time.

Plus, I can carry it over.

mine doesn't carry, at the end of the year I get a check for the unused balance. It usually works out that I have 6-18 hours left. this year i think i'm down to 6 or 7 hours left.

Pah, I've been out of university two years and I get four weeks paid holiday plus a week at Christmas. And sick leave.

Today I've asked my superiors when I'm supposed to take days off.
I have a certain amount of days off left, and they keep tell me to use 'm or I'll lose 'm (that's not up to them but staff management) - but I don't get a chance to use 'm!
Now most of my colleagues planned their holidays. I'm the one who has to work. :embarassed:

So don't get sick/take off work for 13 years and you can get a full year off.


I don't work an official job so I can take as many days as I want.


Still 7.5 years? Smeggy, you need to find a new jorb.

That's because Europeans don't work as hard/much/often as Americans.

They have a cap on how much you can bank. I am not sure but it may be 320 hours. I never flirt with it so I don't keep track.

Over here employers are jostling at the chance to negotiate with their workers to swap holiday time for higher wages. We have a big problem with "presenteeism" over here, maybe that's why.

Those three things are different though. As I understand it, Germans work harder but for shorter hours, for instance.

????????
I've never been in a US office, but the people working at the register/baggers are working REALLY slow in the USA.

So I don't know about the harder working. More, probably.

I was pointing out that in the U.S. many jobs have something like 2 weeks vacation, while many places in Europe have 6 week vacations. I've heard you get something like 2 months in Italy and France. I've also heard the average workday in the U.S. is longer then in Europe.
