    two years worth of / two years' worth of

    Hi,

    For this sentence, "Sequoia just gave Color two years worth of time not to have to worry about that", shouldn't it be "Sequoia just gave Color two years' worth of time not to have to worry about that" ?
    Should it be "two years worth of " or "two years' worth of " ?

    Thank you

    That means little to me with or without an apostrophe.
