“This is so clever,” said Fandomfanboi, making a cameo appearance in his popular post. “I just wanted to share it with you because I think that we should all be taking more breaks and getting paid for them.”
10 days is the average PTO in the United States private sector, not including paid holidays and sick days. I don't know what job this person has, but they are certainly onto something!
"My company doesn’t pay holiday pay unless you work either the day before or after."
"Y'all are getting 18 days worth of PTO??"
"I work in an office and if you take the day before a paid holiday off then you don’t get paid for the holiday."
"That’s assuming your company gives days off like Veterans Day and MLK day which most don’t."
