February 29th Holiday - I have been vindicated!

Just the other day I wrote that February the 29th should be a public holiday for salaried workers - I felt I made a reasoned argument, but tonight I was totally justified when TV3 news did the exact same story.



Really, they didn't try as hard as I did to make the case for it, and I think the fact they put it down to averaging out was a bit of a cop out, as was the reasoning that it is automatically built in to the amount that people are paid in their contract - what about people who only work for one year and that year is a leap year? That must mean they are getting screwed by at least three quarters of a day then, right?


OK, I have probably beaten this to death now, but, next February 29th I hope you enjoy the holiday I have earned for you.
