That's because the only days you take off are to go to interviews for other jobs.

My boss just let me know that even though today is his first day back in 1-month since he took December off, I can't take off Friday because he needs to go watch his daughter's basketball game. I hope there's a horrible accident in the bleachers at the basketball game.
Ask him if you can get the day off so you can watch the game too.

Paid days off are a joke. If you have something to do and need the time off, then take the time off. Why the **** should someone get paid for a day off? Ohh let me guess, you "earned" it right? lol

Know what? I can do what is basically trading days off for a higher salary. Why do you have an issue with this, Vash? Why would anyone?

So wait do you now have 3 different MS? You have the mspnp in your track car, your Reverent built built MS2, and now this one? I say you put the new one on the bench, then slowly acquire the parts to make it work with ms3x.

Already been there done that.

I guess I was raised different. We don't take handouts, nor do we give them out. Earning extra cash (in my experience) comes by working MORE hours, not less.

You are thinking about this wrong, Vash.

I am trading additional money for time off in my case. I can't speak of anyone else on here, but I am pretty confident it's the same in their cases.

I have the ability to negotiate less time off - and earn more money. Or I can negotiate more time off, and earn less money.

Or, to put it more simply, the "paid" time off is merely taking the salary from days I earn, and putting that salary into my "paid" time off. Understand?

It *is* earned. Even by your definition.

I understand how it works, but what I dont understand is why it even came about in the first place.

Why do people NEED paid time off? Why do these companies and corporations pay you guys to take the time off?

Say you want to take a 2 week vacation somewhere nice, why should Joe Blow Corp. pay you to? You feel sick and need to stay home for a day or two, why should you get paid for that?

Not trying to dog anyone really, I just think its part of the "lazy American" persona that we you give ourselves yourselves.

It's because studies have shown that time off from work actually makes you MORE productive. And since people woudln't get paid otherwise, they weren't taking off work. So as an incentive for people to take off they started doing paid time off.
