Can my employer offer paid time off to some employees but not to others in the same position?

Question Details: My employer offers vacation and personal days to all the managers only. I have been a manager for almost 2 years, but they will not give me any vacation or personal days. The policy changed before I was hired that the general manager and assistant manager would be the only employees eligible for this benefit. All the other managers had been employed and were receiving paid time off prior to this policy change, so they are "grandfathered" in to still receive paid time off. So I have other employees in the exact same job as myself that all get vacation and personal days and I do not. Is this something that my employer is allowed to do? Not offering the same benefits to people in the same position?
