  •  My job requires me to work some holiday's (5+ / 0-)

    Its a 24 hr X 7 day a week operation.  But for Holidays we get 8 hours of holiday pay - whether you work or not - and if you work you get time-and-a-half for the hours you work on top of the 8 hours of holiday pay.  And we work with a reduced staff so some members of our team get to have the holiday off.

    Plus, unlike Walmart they don't cut our hours before the holiday to limit the payroll effect of working on a holiday.  I also don't work in retail, and my employer compensates very well.

    I don't mind working most holidays, but thanksgiving is my holiday, I'll cover Christmas for co-workers with kids, I'll cover New Years for our employees that like to celebrate, but they get to cover for my turkey overdose.
