You should move to germany, LV. I get 30 vacation days + 7-9 public holidays depending on whether they fall on a saturday/sunday or not. Everyone has healthcare, too. There is also no such thing as "sick days". You just stay home for as long as you need if you're sick. After three days you need a doctors notice. After six consecutive weeks of being sick you'll stop getting your full pay and receive like 70%.

The downside: Taxes Taxes Taxes


Sounds a lot like here. We have 12 public holiday days, in addition to 25-30 vacation days each. Doctors notice is needed after three days away from work or school. Reduced pay when you are sick over time. Paid by work the first 16 days, and the state after that. Free healthcare apart from going to the dentist.

Taxes from 0% to 47%. $55000 a year gives you 26,7% taxes. If you earn $125.000 you pay 35,7% taxes.

I’ve been in bed all day recovering from a fever. I can’t remember the last time I really got sick was, but last night was BRUTAL. Went from very cold to very hot quickly, then stayed at 103 for most of the night. When the fever broke, I was drenched. Now I’m cold again but my temp is on the low side of normal.

wtf, friends?

That is going around here. Seems likely. My temp didn’t stay up long enough to really merit seeing a doctor.

I pretended I was sick and took a half day on Thursday. Then my boss said to call her on Friday if I still don’t feel well so I took Friday off too.
