TO SIR, TOUGHEN UP

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

If Jewish teach­ers were re­fused time off for the High Holy-Days ( Let­ters, pas­sim), I would have ev­ery sym­pa­thy. But I have lit­tle com­pas­sion for em­ploy­ees who en­joy 12 weeks’ paid hol­i­day a year and ex­pect to be paid for tak­ing fur­ther time off for fes­ti­vals. As a self-em­ployed pro­fes­sional, I lost in­come when I missed a day’s work. I con­sid­ered it a small price to ob­serve my re­li­gion. Alan Miller Clois­ter Gar­dens, Edg­ware, Middx
