Also this isn’t even a question at some firms. That’s basically what going part time means.

I’m PT and still work weekends, holidays, and evenings if client needs require. PT just means fewer hours annually. There is no guarantee of protected time off in big law. This is a thought exercise - and a good one - but it’s no one’s reality here.

No. And it would never be guaranteed, so question is moot.

Given the strength of the dollar vs the euro, could people purchase euros here in the US (banks/money exchange stores) and sell them later when the Euro becomes stronger? Is this possible/legal? I assume taxes would need to be paid on the gains? Never dabbled in Forex so please forgive the newbie question. This scenario just keeps running through my head when I hear the news. And I keep wondering why people arent doing this 😅
