What some would give to have what we have, yet we are about to give it away for money ($$$)
(The reality is one day this day will be taken away from us, and at that moment you will realize what you lost something you never used.)
A part-time seniority employee shall be paid for the following holidays provided the employee works a minimum of two (2) days during the holiday week: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve Day.
A full-time seniority employee shall be paid for the following holidays, provided the employee works a minimum of two (2) days during the holiday week: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve Day.
Problem: Too many employees don’t know what days they get off WITH PAY!!!!!
Example: The day after Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are days money can be made and usually is. Everyone comes in for that triple time. Money for Christmas or the Holidays. I get it, but I play the long game. Below is my thinking about this holiday.
Opinion: There is plenty of money to be made during “peak”. One day of triple pay isnt’ going to make that much of a difference once the taxes come out. I don’t have a price when it comes to time off with my family. I take the time. What some need to realize is at some point they eventually will eventually take this holiday from us, meaning that one day you will have to work the day after Thanksgiving and New Year Eve. When that happens, there is no reason to pay triple time anymore. It will become the normal day. It’s there, use it! Enjoy the time off. I will finish by reminding those with the attendance problem about how you get called in the office for taking too many sick days. So with that in mind, here is a Holiday. A holiday you are excused from work. A day you get paid. And it is four (4) straight days off. I have nothing else to add to this section.
