Topic - Is August Bank Holiday worth it?

mypyrex - on 27 Aug 2013
Coming back from the Carneddau yesterday I was caught up, thankfully only for about fifteen minutes, in the predictable build up of traffic on the A55. It got me thinking; there must be a better solution to giving people a day off from work which results in sheep like queues to get home on the last Monday in August.

Instead of having a single fixed day as a "Summer" bank holiday, why not bring in legislation under which employers are obliged to allow employees one day's holiday over and above their annual leave allowance which can/must be taken at any time between, say, the beginning of July and the end of August?

Surely this would alleviate things like traffic and public transport congestion.
