Please note – this was a joke for the 1st April….
Wow…good news peeps. It looks like the Federal Government will be passing a bill that will allow people to take a day off from work, with full pay, to be able to celebrate their birthday.
They recognise that this is a practice that already happens within the work place sector and that for many people – they will take a sickie, or family day off. Productivity reports have been mentioned about how the moral of staff and the recognition of the individual worth of employees will far out weigh any financial cost to business.
Seems an interesting bill. I”m not sure how that will effect the thousands of people who are self employed and on government benefits….
