    So much religion, so little industry.

    Glancing through the list I am pleased to see that every major Religion is included in the holidays, and think that this is something Indonesia ought to be congratulated on, for a change.
    I count 13 work days in total, which including the two weeks annual leave most employers provide is not overly excessive to me.
    Australia is reputed to have more Holidays, Annual leave and otherwise than any other Western Country, a point that is open to debate but it is a fact that it does have an abundance of Public Holidays, hell we even use the Queens Birthday as an excuse for a bludge, and I don't think even the Poms have that, and it's productivity isn't overly impacted.
    I believe that the general attitude towards work, in combination with other cultural factors impact far more negatively upon Indonesia's Productivity than the total number of Religious Tangal Merah.

    I agree, om
    Beside, Indonesians only entitle for 12 days of annual leave. I believe (Please correct me if I'm wrong) other countries have around 2 weeks up to 30 days of annual leave?

    um...yes 2 day off every month for M leave..but when i worked in an office that provides that leave, i never took it..
    im ok in my period time, yet if i had to take it...i could imagine, i would be so shy to say it, even through sms... hehe...
    some friends of mine took it because they really had the severe pain for the first day every time they got the monthly period...

    and each company has the policy, yes...thats right...

    no problem with me that all religions celebrate their important days...
    i love that...

    (some years ago, caught in Bali with no electricity at Nyepi...was fine too...enjoyed the silence and sat down at beach quietly...)
    he he, i think those marked day r totally fine..
    since the rest 340days more gonna be my busy days ahead...
