    Why don't we ask for more instaed of less?

    In WI ppl complained about teachers getting more vacation time. They didn't complain about thier jobs NOT giving enough vacation. Their envy caused them to see it as unfair.

    The Average American gets approx 9 days of vacation. The screams from the right are what? Let's knock that down to 5?

    I note how carefully those asking their fellow Americans to give up their right to collective bargaining fail to ask the BANKSTERS to give up their right to demand rates of interest on long and short term loans that are 10, 20, 30 times the cost of the money they borrow to relend it out.

    Of course that kind of exploitation, exploitation of the have not class by the have too much class doesn't bother them one bit, does it?

    Tools.

    You started mewling about Wisconsin and teachers....Teachers get no less than three fucking months of vacation, not to forget the two weeks at Christmas, a week in the spring and the numerous "official" Monday holidays....All of them paid, no less.

    If you want more days off, negotiate with your employer and knock it off with your sniveling.

    Happy now?

    If Americans are not allowed some sort of decent life then you will see less spending.

    Its the American consumer that gives all of us a decent living.

    Why does the right want the American worker stripped of a decent life?

    If you can negotiate more holidays with your employer, do it, or find a job that will give you the time off you need.

    I can't imagine a better way to spur on hiring than trying force small business to give more vacation, let alone vacations similar to what teachers get. lol fuck me
