Personally I feel very fortunate not to have experienced these things. I currently get eighteen days of paid vacation combined with "floating holidays" per year. In two more years that will become a full month of paid time off. The company I contract under also has a policy of paid sick time with no hard limit on it. (Though of course they monitor it for abuse, and any sick time in excess of three consecutive days is supposed to be transferred over to disability claims.)
How is your experience in this regard, and what have you seen in the situations of other people you personally know? Are we getting more, less, or just enough vacation from employers? Are benefits becoming a thing of the past?
