This has been a debate at my workplace lately. We need to request time off for holidays a month in advance. Our store and office is open the July 4th holiday.
Almost all the college kids that work there put in their time off request to go to a cabin together last week. However, the moms didn't put in their time off requests then, and it's on a first in/first granted basis. They are all now flipping out because they won't be able to find childcare and will miss a fun holiday with their kids.
Do you think moms/parents should get preference in these cases?
