Australians do, guaranteed 5 weeks at christmas (at least) plus extra for every year they have been employed, New Zealand has followed suit too.
I think China, has sod all public holidays, simply because they deduct many, by making the citizens work over the weekend etcetera!
Live to work! I live to make money!
Who said anything about working, we get paid on these days!
I just looked, we have 4 weeks per year and 11 stat days, one week less than those bloody aussies, but we are about to amend that, I believe!
In the UK they get 20 days plus public holidays, my best deal was Saudi... 30 days holiday plus 11 public holidays, and a full weekend each week. So that was over 8 weeks paid holiday a year, plus the usual collapse in real work all the way through Ramadan. Best deal ever I reckon.
really? Holy Mohammed!
Do they hire chinglish teacher there? what about gigalo? What about do they have yellow man fever there?
There were plenty of Chinese people working on our project - ZTE were there in force. In the main there are decent English teaching jobs out there, and the money's good but they want big qualifications for teachers - not just mickey mouse ESL stuff. If you want to get laid... forget it in Saudi, you'll have to use your weekends to go to Bahrain or Dubai instead.
Yeah the total we will get this year in NZ is 28 days plus 10 stat days, buyt next year that will increase to 35 plus 10!
Not bad on a good salary, the deal that you had in Saudi was great, for a place which boasts such an impressive GDP level!
Who have the smartest employees? I suspect they deserve the most days off and the most red envelopes. I suspect the cardboard scavengers never get a day off, much less a red envelope.
I give all the recyclying material to the guys. Common 2 yuan for lots of plastic bottles?
French workers get five weeks a year (that's without counting paid days off called RTT, created when we stopped working 39 hours a week and started working 35 hours. That would be two days a month) plus 11 days for public holidays.
Teachers get about...5 months a year.
Oh and of course we have two days off per week.
Actually it means the average worker has 178 working days and 174 days off.
That's pretty good!
