Albany-- It's been a banner year for Procter and Gamble.

Sales have soared, as has their stock. Now, the employees are getting a thank-you.

This is the converting operation at the Albany Plant, where they manufacture Charmin Toilet Tissue. 

1,400 people work at the plant and all will get a choice between two free days off or the after-tax equivalent in cash.

A spokesperson for the plant says when P&G succeeds, so does Albany.  External Affairs Manager, Vince Falcione, says "You know the company has a lot of faith in the people in Albany and we have invested 750 million dollars in this site since the mid 90's.  We had the ground breaking for our child care recently, there is alot of good things happening here."

The employees were notified on Monday of the reward. P&G has a history of profit-sharing with their employees.
