Here is the deal: my immediate supervisor has asked my colleagues and I to work for two months straight with no time off. This is sort of a non-traditional job in which I already work unusual and long hours...often, 9 or 10 AM thru 8 or 9 PM. But currently we get some time off here and there (nominally, two days a week, but it never quite works out like that). We are thinking about going to one of our higher-ups and inquiring about getting some sort of relief. Maybe one day per week, or two half days, I don't know. It doesn't really matter, I just want time to actually do the things that normal people need to do. Laundry, grocery shopping, etc. I have some reservations about bypassing my supervisor, but as one of my co-workers said he is not receptive to this idea. We're not sure what to do but we have agreed that we'll present a united front on this. Thoughts on what to do? Is it wrong to ask for this?
