UK min Holidays is 20 working days

South Africa is minimum 15 working days (3 weeks), generally increasing as a person is promoted (I had 24 at my last company)

Plus 12 public holidays and a law that states that should a public holiday fall on a sunday, then the monday will be a holiday providing it is not already

Compulsory flexitime would be a great benefit to all - you clock in and out, but when you work over you are credited with the time and can take it off when you need it or just work shorter days.

There are core hours on a day - for us core is 10-11:30 and 2-3:30 and you have to be within set limits at each month end but can take up to two flexi days off a month - plus the 25 days holiday (rising to 30 after 5 years service) and about 10 days bank hols/Queen's birthday etc.

As a civil servant I've got flexi and decent chairs and good training and a final salary pension and life insurance...
the pay is just 30% lower than industry

I sometimes wonder what extra proportion of our income those of us in the private sector would have to sacrifice to get the same pension...but then we'd still have a defined contribution and not defined benefit scheme. But the stock market never goes down and trashes pensions does it?

There is no problem so great that it can not be solved by caffeine and chocolate.
