  1. It’s all about productivity. Every national day off impacts GDP. However, time off can also be beneficial. And it can be a reward for good work. Thats why it should be left up to the boss.

  2. Many employers give vacation time or personal leave time. My former employer gave us a floating holiday. Some employees chose to use that day for their birthday. I chose to work on my birthday. My department usually celebrated birthdays anyway with some sort of cake or dessert. So, I guess my vote would be with the “Let the boss decide”.
