How much time off do you or your hubby get a year?

If you or your DH work outside of the home, how many sick days and vacation days do you and/or your DH get a year?

I'm just curious because I feel like my DH is getting screwed! He has worked for his company for 10 years and he only gets 10 vacation days and no sick days. After he works there for 15 years he will get 15 vacation days. That just doesn't seem like very many to me!

  • My DH gets 2 week vacation a year. He just started this job A few months ago. He does get sick days , But I do not know how that works. All the jobs he has had started out with 2 week vacation a year. When he was in the army he got 30 days a year.

  • Hmmm. We get four weeks (been at the job 12 years) and about five sick days and a few personal days.

  • Im a SAHM so doesnt apply for me, but DH is military so he gets the standard 30 days paid leave yearly, plus most federal holidays off too.

  • My husband has worked for his company for 9 years and gets 2 weeks full vacation and another week of DAT days (day at a time that he can use whenever but only 1 or 2 days in a row). He also gets sick time based on how many hours he has put in. No clue what he has saved up. He used most of them last year because he had back surgery and the cold weather really hurt his back when winter came so he used his sick and vacation days so he only was working 3 days a week to save his back.
