Or vote on how long you can stay in office. Term limits will never happen as long as the people it affects are the ones to decide it.

we just voted and got an 8% pay rise, we also get double and treble time for holiday periods oh and we get full pay when on the sick so in theory I can go off work for over 4 months and still get my full pay Cool

This is what is known as "unsustainable" in economic circles. Cool

It's amazing to me that a company can stay in business and remain competitive with their workforce having the option to not work and still get paid for up to 1/3 of the year.

Maybe UK workers are more principled than workers in the U.S.. if a company gave such benefits here, the vast majority of the workforce would be home "sick" enjoying a paid vacation for 1/3 of the year... I guarantee it.

That's pretty steep. That's about $7-$8 bucks a gallon. We are currently paying around $4 per gallon here so figure roughly half. I'll give up some vacation time for half price gas! Too-funny

As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.
