Did you know that Indonesia has 13 recognized national and religious holidays? (Today is Ascension Day, whatever that means.) That’s almost 2 weeks of PTO, not even counting the average 2 weeks of PTO a full-time employee gets, like Seth.
And teachers? We get 3 weeks in December, 1 week in March, 5 in June/July, 2 in August, and 1 in October. This totals 12 weeks of PTO!!
It’s important I remind myself of this amazing fact when I am cursing the country and its dysfunctions. Because back in the states… I had zero PTO as adjunct faculty. Zero.
