Santa Obama: Some Fed Workers Get Paid Time Off
“Santa Claus is bringing gifts to some federal workers to offset the pay freeze they’ve suffered through this year.”
“According to the administration, while there is no government-wide policy to give federal workers extra time off during the Christmas-New Year’s holidays, federal agency bosses are being granted wide leeway to offer their workers a few extra days off. And according to some federal workers, agency heads are planning to grant employees some paid days off because they didn’t received a pay hike this year.
The time off comes on top of the extra full or half day President Obama is expected to give during Christmas, which comes on Sunday this year. The federal holiday for Christmas will be Monday December 26.”
