they changed the vacation thing, again. now everyone has to take 80 hours from t-day to jan. 31, no matter how much vacation you have in your accrual bank. i took two days for t-day, which leaves me with 8. xmas and new year’s takes up 4, then we are closed MLK day w/out pay. so i had to pick three days in january to take off. i’m taking a five-day weekend over MLK day. what a crock. when all’s said and done, i’ll have -24 hours of vacation feb. 1. given the fact that i only accrue 40 hours a year, this is really annoying me. why couldn’t they have pro-rated it according to how much you accrue? the people who earn 4 weeks a year could take twice as much as those who earn 2 weeks. so much for a summer vacation. good thing i didn’t have one planned.
