    So now we're discussing subsidizing travel, too? What entitlement is next, lap dances?

    If you're asking me, I don't know. It's not mandated by the government, so any number would be purely an average of thousands of different corporate policies and incentive packages.

    The only mandate we have in that regard is the FMLA, and it is for some number of weeks of unpaid leave in the event of a significant medical event.

    You mean that you dont get a minimum of days paid leave per year?

    Not in general. However, public sector jobs offer quite a few, and many corporate jobs have a good number of them.

    I'd say that, on average, if you're in a position that allows for paid vacation days per year, you get 7-10.

    If you're a Wal-Mart greeter, you get none. You haven't earned it, grunt.

    Almost as absurd as the coming salt regulation.

    Yes, a typical full-time job in America is 40 hours per week, breaking down to 8 hours a day, five days a week.

    Some people do. There is no maximum number of days in the workweek, and many people work more than 5.
