that's just/still bullshit, in France (a lazy country for americans), most people have between 5 weeks and 7 weeks of vacations (about 1,5 month in the year...) not three months or whatever.... And It is also the same in other countries of Europe...

What should not be read...

lol....

It ain't bullshit. I've worked in about 30 countries.

I've lived in UK (various), Knoxville Tennessee, Breda in da Netherlands, Copenhagen, Tokyo & Toyama Japan and Thailand.

I can tell you something - the Dutch & Germans are neck & neck in the 'most holidays' race.

In Germany, they have additional allocations as you get older. If you look it up, you'll find they can get up to 35 days paid vacation plus there's some 30 day extra holiday they can get when they are older.

So - with all due respect - what I posted was NOT bullshit.

List of statutory minimum employment leave by country - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It looks like true numbers, I do not see 60 days for Germans.
The exception should not be the general.

Germany


The common holiday duration is 30 days - the minimum holiday entitlement are 24 days (by law). There isn't a additional holiday schedule for older employees. Only teachers have a lot more free day's because there working in alignment with the school vacations. Mostly there spend a few days of it for preparation (at least they should).

Singapore

From my workaholic country:

An employee's (earning not more than $2,000 basic monthly salary) annual leave entitlement under Part IV of the Employment Act is as follows:

1st year of service - 7 days of leave
2nd year of service - 8 days of leave
.
.
7th year of service - 13 days of leave
8th and thereafter - 14 days of leave

The employer may grant the employee unpaid leave, if the employee is not eligible for annual leave or has used up his annual leave.

The employer can deduct an employee's salary for excess annual leave taken. i.e. excess annual leave may be treated as unpaid leave and deductions made from salary accordingly.

Source: Annual Leave - Ministry of Manpower

Those earning more than $2,000 get 14 days of annual leave or more (depending on the executive position, managerial level, etc..).

Needless to say, the grossly over-paid Singapore Government ministers are not subject to such rules..

Thankfully, we got a number of public holidays to cheer us up..

On Vacation and Sick? A Court Says Take Another

For most Europeans, almost nothing is more prized than their four to six weeks of guaranteed annual vacation leave. But it was not clear just how sacrosanct that time off was until Thursday, when Europe’s highest court ruled that workers who happened to get sick on vacation were legally entitled to take another vacation.

“The purpose of entitlement to paid annual leave is to enable the worker to rest and enjoy a period of relaxation and leisure,” the Court of Justice of the European Union, based in Luxembourg, ruled in a case involving department store workers in Spain.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Greek healthcare system collapses, hospital workers now working without pay

The economic situation in Greece is only continuing to worsen, as reports indicate that hospitals and care centers throughout the nation are running completely out of medicines, and many healthcare workers are now voluntarily providing care services without pay.

Strapped with spiraling debt, the Greek healthcare, which is government-run, has had to receive gobs of international financial aid just to keep operating with some semblance of normalcy. There has also been plenty of IOUs issued, and desperate patients quietly forking over cash "gifts" to doctors to receive treatments. All in all, the healthcare situation is in utter chaos, save for those that have sacrificed their own time, often free of charge, just to help those in need.

And to quote DionysusToast ...

The US was like Greece before Greece was like Greece....

This is where US healthcare system is headed if Obamacare allowed to stand. I was reminded how inefficient government is when I had to stand in line with my daughter for 5 hours to get drivers license renewed. Government employees did not give a rip. Imagine standing in line for healthcare.
