That doesn't work for low level employees.

Not because you can ignore email during your vacation but that you won't get a vacation.

Yes, but you're probably not worth calling either.   I do get the occasional after hours call, but the other side if that is very flexible hours.

uuuhh, the "sucker" here is you, if you even hooked up your work email to your personal life mobile device.

It's not the bosses fault for utilizing every resource available to them whenever.
This is why it is your RESPONSIBILITY to ensure your boss was not invited into your personal life in the first place.


Work can pay for the phone bill if work expects me to use it for their benefit 24/7/365

I'm salaried, but when I leave for the day, unless there's a crisis, I'm not working. Which means, no email.

And crisis is defined as, "shiat done be broken", not "I need someone to do something for me."

I can't tell you how many of my co-workers have only their work-provided devices and do all their personal biz on the company's hardware.
