    They didnt fight to continue slavery, the fought for the independence of the southern states, and slavery was only a small contributing factor, we also celebrate e lee because he was a great geeral, no matter what side he was fighting for, and every and ALL war participents should be honored for bravery at the least.

    New Holiday!
    Celebrating the hard work of minorities contributions to America. A week of learning in school the benefits of immigration, people of color, and people with disabilities pioneering and/or inventing things we use every day. Then a day off in observance.
    How lovely would that be.

    are you sure about the 24 days? From what I remember the EU minimum is 5 weeks, which would translate to 25 days. So if you only get 24 days than your employer is screwing you over (illegally)

    Mostly you have to plan all of your holidays for the year until march. March is the common due day, I you haven't planned all your holiday days till then they just expire. That's how it is in most German companies

    Get rid of Confederate Memorial Day in South Carolina and replace it with Carolina Day at the end of June, which commemorates the first decisive victory in the Southern campaign during the Revolutionary War.

    New holiday? ELECTION DAY! Make it a Monday holiday, AND open the polls on the weekend also. Allow 72 hours to vote, so shift and weekend workers can vote, and REQUIRE employers to allow employees time to vote (some bosses will deliberately cancel time off or require overtime of workers they suspect will vote differently than the boss, in order to deny them their right to vote).

    Yes Dana, tell the American how "evil" Bernie Sanders would have been 😉
    …and it would be a worthwhile question, if the US is a much more productive country then Germany? 😉

    The German law on vacations is kind of complicated.. The Bundesurlaubsgsetz (Federal Law on Vacations)provides anyone 24 days off based on a 6-day-week. So the Saturday always counts. And this law encourages (but don't makes it mandatory) to give a yearly vacation of three weeks in a row. Severely handicapped also have some extra days off, provided by other laws. And a lot of labor agreements make more payed days off mandatory. So a lot of industrial workers have 30 days (based on 5-day-week). There are some religious holidays in early summer, which are bound to Thursdays, so it's a kind of sports to get the Fridays scheduled. To avoid arguments, some companies just close for those days.
    There are also some informal holidays, like carnival Monday in Cologne. So it's a common joke to let staff members in the U.S. play calls to Cologne at this day. If they get an answer at all, the person they called is probably drunk…

    Where I come from Hl. Nikolaus should be a public holiday. Because that is "Krampus" Day!
