This poll was inspired by a brief conversation I had with a couple of other expats over at another website. The discussion started as a debate about January 6th being made a 'new public holiday' – which made little sense to me as Magic Kings' day already was a holiday.
A generally held view seems to be that the last thing Spain needs is more public holidays, but I couldn't quite establish whether the people who were espousing this POV were themselves employed in Spain, or whether they simply wanted to be able to go shopping whenever they wanted and sod the workers.
So what do you think? Do you work in Spain? How does your company treat you? Has Spain caught up with the UK in terms of worker exploitation modern labour practices? Is Spain a good place to work? As usual, you can select one answer from the list on the right >>> but it's your comments that I'm most interested in.
