News You Can't Use:Improved benefits for the clergy ... for the first time in 500 years

No matter how good your benefits are, there's always room for improvement. But if you're a member of the clergy, such improvements were long in the making. For the first time ever, the Church of England has conceded that ministers are employed by the church and not by God.

Ministers for the Church of England will now be permitted legislation covering health & safety, the national minimum wage, paid holidays, 'whistle-blowing', anti-discrimination, paid holidays, family-friendly flexible working policies, the working time directive, and unlawful deduction of wages.

Reason #405723495723 we're glad to live in America ... and to work for a secular organization.
