Thanks, BC.  I'm fortunate to have an employer who also contributes to my RRSP, too.  For a small company, we have a lot of benefits - health, dental, eyecare.  Plus she gives everyone 1 paid sick day/month (It can accrue but goes back to 0 if you don't use them by the end of the year) and just a couple weeks ago, she is giving us each 1 paid "mental health day"/month.

Nice!  There are many benefits to being on payroll.  I had two bad experiences being laid off and I vowed never to work for one company again and I went into self-employment. 

I have to pay for all my own extended benefits (for which I do budget), my own retirement, mat-leave, personal days and stats and holidays and although it's desperately needed, I don't get any mental health days!   :'(

A nice reliable employer who treats its employees well is worth its weight in gold.
