I haven’t seen such type of calendar in previous years.
Right. That note is for the calendar from the official website www.dgpa.gov.tw
The news agency enhanced the official calendar in a good way. The only downside are the red holiday names covering the calendar partially.
That’s WAY too many extra Saturdays. I HATE that. This year didn’t have many. I’d far rather work on Monday have a holiday on Tuesday than have trade a one day weekend for a four day weekend. I need my Saturdays. A four day weekend just means housework.
I don’t know about majorities, but I have never worked for a company that ignores them. At my present and previous company, I have had to make up for typhoon days. TYPHOON DAYS! I used to wish for typhoons (and that no one would get hurt). Now I hope they pass by.
The 6-day weeks are rough for teachers and students, and everyone seems to be dragging from lack of rest the following week as well. It’ll be interesting to see what comes from the MOE meeting mentioned in the video.
