    i don't mean this with any offence to any person or profession, just providing information. As far as I know (unless it has changed) police receive 8 weeks paid holidays a year as it is deemed necessary for them to help them cope with the stress of the job. I think this is an excellent idea and I feel it should apply to all jobs like teaching, DOCS workers, doctors/nursing (especially something like ED, ICU, oncology etc where you see people die regularly) and ambulance medics.

    Not in nsw they don't.
    From the PANSW-
    Annual leave on full pay will accrue at the rate of 228 hours (6 weeks) for non commissioned officers and 190 hours (5 weeks) for commissioned officers, or at the rate of 228 hours (6 weeks) if the officer qualifies for 3 or more additional working days, and where an officer is regularly rostered to work shift work on Sundays and public holidays. If you are on a default roster working Monday – Friday you are entitled to 4 weeks (152 hours) and are free from work on gazetted public holidays.

    Yes, exactly - I've already said that. I said in a previous post that the careers that really mean something never get paid what they are worth. Nurses, police officers, teachers etc.

    Just wanted to pop in and say that teachers are my heroes and there isn't enough money in the world to pay them what they are worth to our children, our society, and our future
