Democrats are idiots:
Rep. Alan Grayson was standing in the middle of Disney World when it hit him: What Americans really need is a week of paid vacation.
So on Thursday, the Florida Democrat will introduce the Paid Vacation Act — legislation that would be the first to make paid vacation time a requirement under federal law.
The bill would require companies with more than 100 employees to offer a week of paid vacation for both full-time and part-time employees after they’ve put in a year on the job. Three years after the effective date of the law, those same companies would be required to provide two weeks of paid vacation, and companies with 50 or more employees would have to provide one week.
Yes, by all means, when unemployment is approaching double digits, do please make it more expensive to hire people. You NSFWing moron.
But, wait — wishful thinking will make the law pay for itself! Read on:
The idea: More vacation will stimulate the economy through fewer sick days, better productivity and happier employees.
You know what else would stimulate the economy? If we gave everyone a pony.
