  •  Agree. There's a place for flex and comp time. (1+ / 0-)

    In the technical consulting work I used to do there were always deadlines to get reports finished and out the door. If it took 44 hours to get it done by Friday, I had no problem with coming in at noon on Monday. I could also bank a limited amount for a three-day weekend once a month or to take afternoons off for dental appointments, etc.

    But this was in a well-funded, white-collar business in an expanding economy. It's not appropriate for every situation and it can lead to lazy management that makes a habit of last-minute scrambles.

    I certainly don't trust the Republicans to do anything good with the concept.
