Europe: Sick on Vacation? You've Earned More Vacation!

Europe is on the verge of financial collapse, but for those lucky enough to still have a job (a declining number to be sure), the benefit of their 6 week vacation allocation has been a envy of those of us on this side of the Atlantic. 

Now it gets even better.

Europe's highest court ruled last week that if you went on vacation and got sick, well, those sick days didn't count against your vacation.  You deserve more days off.

You can read the article here.

On the beach and step on a jellyfish?  Stop the vacation clock!  I'm "sick."

Meanwhile, back here in the States, if you have a bad burger at your 4th of July picnic, you better find a way to get your butt back to work on Thursday. 

Wanna place bets on which economy has any kind of chance of making it?
