All employees should receive a minimum of 20 paid vacation days per year (in addition to civic / statutory holidays)
(I believe it's over 30 days in Germany)
We need them
The rules and regulations regarding these waitlists must have been designed by number-crunchers for expediency and efficiency of the system (optimal bed occupancy) who know nothing, or care nothing, about the real life experience of real live sentient human beings. There is a big difference between qualifying for admission to LTC and actually requiring LTC placement. Individuals can 'qualify' for the services that ...more »
