Are today's economic benefits really worth leaping over? - 

This final note today: the economic advantages of adding a day to the year.

Not a whole lot, it turns out.

Individually, though, think about this:

If you get an hourly wage, today was a chance to earn a little bit more money.

If you're on salary, you basically worked for free today.
