    in the 1990s. Instead, we got comp time, but in some departments it was often hard to collect it because the paper was just stripped bare of employees by our corporate ownership. I was in sports, so summer was our down time and I often took much of the summer off.

    That said, it was paid time off. If I had a week of comp time coming and could take it I still got paid for that week. My biggest issue was how they calculated it. I had managers insist that it was 1-for-1 while I always took it at 1 hour for 1.5 hours because, hey, it was overtime work and that's the overtime rate.
