I think you just proved her point.

You could throw back their terrible tax rate at her instead.

Stat holiday means you get the day off work AND your employer has to pay you. If you are working, you get time-and-a-half. Also it's not deducted from your vacation time and it's Canada-wide (for most of them). And it's stopped raining! Thanks, Queen Victoria!

Victoria liked the idea of having a holiday named after her because she was an unrepentant boozehound.

That is all.

Meh. We have there here in Cali. It's called a floating holiday. If you are working you get paid triple time. (Double time for working it and regular paid time). I get 7 of them per year.

Do you get paid for jury duty? AND mileage? Top THAT! *feelin' all smug now*

Yeah, we get paid for jury duty, but it's a pittance. And it's the law in Saskatchewan, if you have to drive for work your employer has to pay you mileage.

We get paid our hourly rate for jury duty, by the employer. How about in Canada?
