Imaginary Friends and Real Labor Problems


September 14, 2014 by JImbo

Canadian Federal Employees Union Fights for Paid Leave for “Spirit Friends.”

This sounds silly and…well… it is.

After all, if they’re “Spirits” they can’t die right?

Like a ghost?

Or do they mean your spiritual leader? Your priest? Or a good friend at church?

This is REALLY stretching it to get a few extra days off.

But it farther down the article gets pretty serious.

“If the federal government accepts all of these demands, federal workers would be working about 40% less than Canadians in private-sector jobs while earning 40% more.”

40% less hours for 40% more pay means TWICE as much pay per hour.

And they still say they’re “underpaid?”

Compared to who?

Their spirit friends?

    If I have enough “spirit” friends I wouldn’t have to work at all!

      I would have a whole spirit army.
      Can I just be friends with the whole zodiac calendar and mourn the changing of the month with another month of paid vacation?
