Should Your Birthday Be A Paid Day Off?
When you go to work on your birthday, does a sheet cake and half-hearted rendition of “Happy Birthday” from your coworkers make up for the soul crushing feeling of, ya know, working on your birthday? The answer is . . . no.
So . . . should companies give us our birthday as a PAID DAY OFF?
In a new survey, 35% of people say the number one day they don’t have off that they WISH they had off is their birthday.
It beat out EVERY other holiday. Even among people who don’t get CHRISTMAS off, only 14% of them said the day they MOST wish they had off is Christmas.
