    Assuming that your people are responsible enough to have everything in order whenever they take leave, giving people enough vacation per year to maintain a reasonable work-life balance shouldn't be such a problem. Two week is shamefully cheap of them.

    I think so too, but I'm spoiled by the luxurious 150 day contract. Of course, there are no benefits.... Still, it's a remote position, which *I think* brings a quality of life into play that has value. Pay is really pretty low for what will possibly be a very demanding position.

    I expect that they expect to hire someone from a lower income country where that sort of salary goes a lot further. And that's fine, we do that too. But in that case the leave is really a slap, since two weeks is disappointing even for the U.S., and the U.S. trails the rest of the world in that regard.

    I'm seeing some retired administrator who has discovered that the life of a golf hack is pretty boring. This is someone with experience who doesn't need the money or the benefits. Basically, a paid volunteer.
