Socialism here we come!

The Paid Vacation Act — legislation that would be the first to make paid vacation time a requirement under federal law.

The bill would require companies with more than 100 employees to offer a week of paid vacation for both full-time and part-time employees after they’ve put in a year on the job. Three years after the effective date of the law, those same companies would be required to provide two weeks of paid vacation, and companies with 50 or more employees would have to provide one week.

The United States is dead last among 21 industrial countries when it comes to mandatory R&R. France currently requires employers to provide 30 days of paid leave. Not surprisingly, some in the travel industry are salivating…

What do you guys think? Is the legislator sponsoring this bill a damned socialist? Or do you like socialism and think that we should be more like France?

Bummer

My employer gives 2 weeks after 6 months and 3 weeks after 2 years of service. They might like this new legislation if they see the savings big government will provide. What a joke. Is it any wonder why I lean toward anarchy?

You mean

Socialism, here we ARE!!!

We should be more like

We should be more like France but in this country it is impossible "be like France" because in France government is afraid of people and here people are afraid of government.
Anybody who was in France understand how big price this proud nation paid to deliver this socialist benefits... they had to sacrifice their colonial and military ambitions...people live there in terrible poverty...and they gave up on their soverignity by joining EU. Only masochists can enjoy paid vacations or medical and education benefits in such dire circumstances...

Grayson enjoys using the force of government, I think.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

Yes he does.
