  •  Nobody EVER gets all their comp time. (7+ / 0-)

    It's never a one-to-one substitution.  We'll work you a lot extra now, and maybe you'll get some flextime later if we feel like it.  And if it's convenient.  And if you don't try to ask for ALL of it.

    •  The model here (3+ / 0-)

      Supposedly the model here is federal employee comp and credit time.  But what they aren't saying about that model is that moany feds aren't allowed to "carry over" more than 24 hours comp/credit time from one two week pay period to the next--meaning you end up contributing that extra time as free work to the government (unless you work for one of those increasingly rare agencies that has $ for overtime).

      And if you do take that time, it's just less vacaion time you take, leaving vacation time to accumulate, never fully used.

      In short, comp time is NOT a fair trade for overtime pay, even in the "succesful" mode they are using.
