Yep, you friend is right. I have never worked at a place with such good benefits. On big snow storms they tell to not even come in.

That is great news for our economy. It could help raise housing prices as well. Any boost would be great.

Good point. Let me put a call into their CEOs to ask for a delay.

Eventually they'll have to move their call center to another state because they will have burned through every possible employee here!
