We all love a bank holiday, sure who doesn't want an extra day off work and a long weekend to relax and recuperate?
Well, Ireland has the lowest number of public holidays in the EU, and we need more.
According to Breaking News, both businesses and politicians think we should all get more and another public holiday needs to be created.
MEP Brian Hayes is trying to highlight this fact and said that while companies should be consulted about an extra holiday, they should not be reluctant to give workers another one.
"A well-motivated workforce is the most important thing (employers) need to make sure they keep the economy going. It's a win-win if we come to an agreement.
"I don’t accept the argument I've heard that this will lead to an economic catastrophe. It's a very small measure, but it's an important measure."
Do you think we need another public holiday? And if so, when?
