Poll: More Time Off, or a Raise? - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

We read and hear about studies that purport to show how a growing number of people would prefer more time off than they would more pay and responsibility at work, since along with the latter usually comes more time spent at work and higher stress levels.

More pay means means increases that are greater than the rate of inflation (i.e., constant dollars).

Assuming that you currently earn enough to maintain a comfortable lifestyle, would you prefer to make more money or have more time off?

Greetings Kirt,

In Europe where I am currently working there are 30 days per year, and this is excluding public holidays. Europe has been always known in its socialiastic work mentality.

Of course that the choice between money and days off is an individual choice, but I would say that extra days off if possible to choose can't be quantized by means of mental benefit one can get from them!

I'm more than ready for more time off. I'd be glad to just work 40 hour weeks again. I'd like to know who among you is an engineer and only works 40 hours? I'd love to work for your company for a few years!

Seriously, who do you work for as an engineer with only 40 hours per week?

Here - here man. After my last airline trip to NYC, I need lots of time off. God help us all.
