That's not going to happen unless you are self employed

Maybe I am in the minority, but I value money more than time off. My company acts as if they are a progressive work-life balance poster child, but the fact remains they will give you time off, but not more money. I think it is bullshit especially because not everybody values time-off the same way. I also think it attracts the wrong kind of employees in general.
What's interesting is if you look at the "best places to work for" there is a mix of places. Some certainly are work-life balance places, but a lot are not - BCG, Google, Goldman, etc.
I know it is a certainly a popular thing to talk about work life balance, and I know the conception that it is milennials who care the most about this, but from the people I have worked with, gen x cares about this at least as much because they typically have kids.
I would generally say I prefer more pay to more time off, but I'm at a point where I can't really stand my job, so more pay wouldn't make me work harder or enjoy my job more.
It was with the Kimpton group too so there were real perks (free dry cleaning), paid lunch hour, and other things*. Being barely over 20y/o I was so eager to do OT, but quickly learned that the taxes on the OT were so high that it was almost like working for normal wages. this was in San Francisco so I might have different views on OT if I was in a lower tax area.

My job, as I'm sure is similar with many of you, can be 65 hours one week and 35 the next. It was a relatively long week for me Mon-Thurs, think I put in about 48 hours, so I'm working from home today. Plan to workout in an hour or so and should be at happy hour by 4:30. I'd be there earlier but Mrs. Piob doesn't get home until 4:20.
Y'all gon smoak dat reefer at 4:20 before hitting up happy hour?
That reminds me...I need to look into a medical card. I'm just concerned of the impact it might have on my various licenses as both the pot card and my licenses come from DHS. They say the pot list is confidential but I don't believe that for a second.
i'm just planning on waiting until it's legal. the rigamarole of finding a dr, etc just seems stupid, on the other hand i probably do suffer from mild clinical anxiety so it would probably help...
but the idea that it's illegal unless you fucking register with some doctorcrat's notion of a valid reason is insane and imma just boycott that game for right now.
maybe we could meet in colorado for happy hour?
Generally when I'm checking into a hotel it's because I'm attending full-day meetings or multi-day conferences. So I completely get how suicide becomes a pretty appealing option.
Not trying to sound snarky but some folks, like me, have various professional licenses where breaking laws can have a real impact on one's career. Also, those of us with ethics/moral clauses in our employment contract, could face some severe negative impact outside of licensing. All the laws surrounding medical marijuana at least get you covered around the contract issues...licensing I'm not so sure.
