But certainly agree that the OP should believe that they should "feel guilty" about the situation.
I was assuming that most actuarial employers would pay for the time missed. So they are involuntarily doing without his services and voluntarily paying him for the time.

18 months seems so long. Are you not allowed to take vacations for a year and a half if they'd require you to miss a day? Or are there any absences allowed?

They activate 23 people at a time, but can work with as little as 16 to constitute an official jury. The jurors work with the foreman coordinate needed time off.

I don't understand why they don't shorten up the time frame either. Personally, I think I'd find it kind of interesting for a while, but not sure that feeling could last 18 months!
