How your job would be different if you worked for the federal government 

Aside from getting an average $11,000 more in salary and $31,000 in annual benefits, lots of leave time and many protections against being fired, you might also get a little time to contemplate nature and U.S.-Japanese relations.

From Federal Times:

Office of Personnel Management employees in Washington will get a treat later this week: an hour off to view the cherry blossoms and squeeze in a little exercise.

OPM Director John Berry issued a memo March 26 to the nearly 1,500 employees at the agency’s Washington headquarters granting them an hour off from April 1 to 4 to walk down to the Tidal Basin and see the blossoms. Those four days will be the blossoms’ peak blooming days.

By the way, the weather in Washington is sublime and supposed to be even nicer Thursday and Friday.
