Summers off. 2 day week the rest of the year. free BBQs
Winter holidays can be great! Snuggling in front of an open fire (a real one, not YouTube!) in a log cabin.

Thought maybe this thread was gonna be about asking someone to marry you on the August bank holiday weekend at Reading Festival

Retail/catering staff etc should get paid bank holidays too.
Thinkbwe should get 2+ bank Holidays per week, imo matched across all industries.

Sort of thing where if a Tory did that the right wing press would hail it as brilliant and a demonstration of how much those Etonians are men of the people.
I think we should have a four-day week every week (for us office wankers, sorry retail and other)
The worst thing about Bank (and the emphasis on “Bank”) Holidays is how, if your earnings are structured that way, they delay getting paid. Good Friday/Easter Monday’s double whammy the absolute worst.
This just made me google when Easter 2020 is. Turns out we’ve already had it.
I think there should be more of them and I think they should be more themed.
first monday of Feb, and then one other
that’s as a minimum
and more annual leave
and four day weeks as standard
extra pay for any hours worked outside Monday - Thursday 7am - 7pm
More bank holidays
