If employers are forced to give employees paid vacations, they’ll just pay employees a little less to make up for each employee working less over the course of the year. The cost to hire you (in some combination of money and benefits) isn’t going to increase. Why force the employee to take less money and more benefits?
Most employers will let you take time off, unpaid, anyway… if that is what you want.
Some of those Grayson forced-out/locked-out employees will moonlight (usually for less money/hour) because they want the money instead of the vacation time.
Now they’d probably rather be working for their regular employer and getting paid more, and their employer would also probably rather have the employee working for them, instead of moonlighting… but Alan Grayson would make that choice (between consenting adults) illegal.
Why doesn’t Grayson propose that everyone be forced to take 6 months vacation a year, and get paid 1/2 as much?
Better yet, why doesn’t Grayson propose that everyone be forced to take 12 months vacation a year, and not get paid at all, ever.
What a total idiot this guy is.
