To avoid any further misunderstandings. I don't have anything against people going on vacations. I'm just back from my own. I believe every working person should have the right and financial funds to go on vacations. Or to sit at home on the couch, doing nothing, and getting paid for.

In Slovenia, we are entitled to a minimum of 4 weeks of annual paid leave (100%). Additional days of annual leave are stipulated by law and it is quite common to reach numbers as high as 35 days, sometimes even more. All 100% paid for. Our socialistic/communistic legacy, I suppose. :)

I understand this isn't the place for this discussion, so @Nugs, enjoy the sun and the cocktails... 

 

I had to get this off my chest.  
 

4 weeks???

I get 15 days a year... :unsure:

Wait a minute now: so you get 4 weeks (20 days) 100% paid off! That exactly what I get. But up to 35 more days off for what? And 100% paid. Sorry I misunderstood that, you are talking about what I call carry overs. 

But @SteveJhb, they don't have as nice of bike trials there.

the days in between the statutory holidays ?

its worse to be in retail and you can't get those days off - its just a long ugly slog and shoppers forget their manners

we are only guaranteed Christmas day and Good friday and half of Anzac day off but God forbid one might work in a petrol station or a neighbourhod dairy that are open 7 days

Dairys are usually open xmas morning so people can buy fresh cream

not sure its any fresher than the stuff you buy on Xmas eve because the milkman isnt delivering to the shops on xmas day

mind you the cow cocky will still be milking the cows

i felt dreadful last xmas stooping for petrol on the drive home after xmas lunch and we brought BP bakery pies and coffee that someone had to make while being not home with their family

but the lady was sooooo nice

How you get by in the USA i dont know! Mind you with us leaving EU soon we will probably be closer to your generous allowances soon! Especially as half our new cabinet published their opinion that we are some of the laziest workers in the world a few years ago!

It depends on the collective agreement. 4 weeks is minimum, plus we get paid for all the public holidays (12 days in 2019). For example, an 18 YO, who had just finished school, starts with 4 weeks, plus 12 public holidays. So he/she is absent from work 32 days during the first year, getting paid for. Additional days are added depending on your personal circumstances (older worker + 3 days (over 55 years), caretaker  (+ 1 day for each kid under 15 years), disabilities, for the total years of working (it's a progressive bonus).

Then there are also additional days depending on which line of work you are in. Cole miners, police workers, firemen, radiologists, doctors & nurses, night workers, transport... those kinds of jobs get a lot more, for example, a doctor, aged over 55, working in radiology or psychiatry can easily reach up to 50 days of paid leave.
In the private sector, the average is 26-32, for the public sector, it's 31 days.  All without public holidays. 

Plus we are entitled to the sick, maternity, father's, parental leave...  And also to the unpaid leave, up to a month, for personal reasons.

i get the feelings American's get a bit hard done by public holidays

we get 11 not including Easter Sunday which is a problem if you work retail as its a pain to get off and you don't get paid for it as the holiday legislation was from before 7 day trading

we need another day between Queen's birthday in June and Labour weekend in October because its a long winter and people get tired, sick and have accidents in this long slog more  than any other time of the year

the 23rd of September could do ....

Wait for me, manj!

Didn't some town / county? in NZ experiment with a 4-day working week? An experimant that went rather well, too?

To be fair, I'd prefer a 4-year holiday every year to a 4-day working week.

i googled but couldn't find much

i thought the French had talked about it

https://i.stuff.co.nz/business/110076890/new-zealands-fourday-week-idea-catching-on

not on my radar 

sounds more Scandi' utopian to me ;)

my old work used to offer 4x 10 hour days

i wouldn't like to do 4 x 8 because it would reduce wages 20%

There is semi-serious talk from some political parties (mostly the left, and they're not in position/government at the moment) about introducing a 6-hour working day (it's about 7,5 hrs/day now), but this idea of a 4-day week has also been mentioned a number of times, I think. I think a combination of the two would be awesome :P

Particularly if you could eliminate Fridays. I mean, seriously, does anything ever really get done on a Friday in your average office building?

This upcoming school year is going to be 4 day weeks for me.

One set of classes on Monday and Wednesday

Another set of classes on Tuesday and Thursday
