1) A lazy worker who only worries about his sick time, paid time off, vacations, and any other paid holiday.
He worries more about taking time off then making money or working hard.

2) Best example is from the movie "Boiler Room" where Ben Affleck wants salesmen that want to make money, not pikers who worry only about vacation time.

Sentence: That piker will do anything to get out of work.

From the word pikey, refers to a person belonging to that group. Pikey/Piker is an Irish gypsy, english trailer trash, and just generally a person not to be trusted, who's past times include stealing, sinnning, gambling and living in caravans. They tend to have a gravitational vortex that attratcts dogs, horses, scrap and junk, and of course, things they have stolen.

Characterised by lurchers on a string, a unintelligible language that "isn't English, it isn't Irish, it's just Pikey" (source: Film: Snatch).
Pikeys are well-known for their skills of negotiation in business.
It's probably why they talk like you can't follow what's being said. (source: Film: Snatch)
"It's a campsite. A pikey campsite."
"What are we doing here?"
"We're buying a caravan."
"Off a pack of fucking pikeys? What's wrong with you? This will get messy...Oh, you bastard.I fucking hate pikers."

Someone who acts as though has some semi credible net worth (less than $2000) when in actual fact a considerably smaller amount.

To qualify a piker they must a )consider $50 an investment

b) sounds like really irritating, banal pathetic/useless/ stupid/moron inducing sludge

Talks for hours about investments and has invested nothing, what a piker
That fucking piker, he claimed he had a million and he dropped.

What totally shit piece of human action, what a piker
