I Am Appreciated

Get this.

I have just been informed that Monday (Labor Day) will no longer be a paid holiday. 

Did you get that?  The holiday that was created to show appreciation to the American worker for his/her contribution to society and the economy is no longer a paid holiday at my job.

I can take the day off but I will not get paid.

This is bullshit.

  2. How wrong is that?! Can they even do that? It’s a federal Holiday, for the love of cake!!

    What kind of crap IS that?!

    That’s wrong and downright un-American. You are living in America, right?

  5. I’m with your first commenter – I’m not so sure that is legal.

  6. It’s a Federal freakin holiday!! How can you not get paid??????

  7. Are you kidding me with this?!?!!

  8. Seriously??!!! How the hell can that be? You have to get holiday pay for a Fed Holiday I thought, but hell who am I anyway. Just a lil peon in the big business world I guess

  9. I do believe that is illegal. It is a “FEDERAL” holiday. So I don’t think they have much of a choice, but to pay you.

  10. After reading through the article, I feel that I really need more info. Could you suggest some resources ?
