Dude, research Europe. This country needs vacation. We're all prematurely dying from heart disease and cancer from stress

And yet, so maby on this app deride non-US countries for the "low salaries" and "high taxes". Can't have it all folks, but I sure as hell enjoy my 6 weeks paid leave

Are you saying you're for or against mandatory vacations?

Huh....drunk? What is your point

Definitely for. But it seems the tradeoff is that in countries with longer mandated vacation periods, salaries are lower. And lots of people on this app are only about the $$

But they also have to pay for less bc their taxes cover it. I think that we should focus on productivity over hours@

One more reason we're heading toward a good economy. Our 20k+ firms aren't going to get a single vacation policy right for everyone.

What do you all do once you hit hours and want to coast (or just not work at all) for the rest of the year? I recently took vacation so feel weird taking another back to back, and my existing matters are still busy. Should I just do it? Could probably take 3 weeks completely off and still hit hours.
