Greenweaver- You know I heard there's a paid vacation act of 2009 but in the works. It is a bill sponsored by Alan Grayson but it is now in committee.
This law will require employers to offer a minimum of one week paid vacation to all its employees.
While I think this it is a nice to get a company to offer this benefit, it could also hurt the company and the employee in the future. A company that absorbs the added costs often has to reduce them elsewhere.
I would hate to think that some people might be laid off, or not hired because of this potential law. While many other countries are more generous with their time off, there are also struggling financially to continue to their generous benefits.
