Jul 5, '04In the past I worked for employers that gave holiday pay to the people who actually work on it and set the Monday as the paid holiday for management.
I am seeing more and more of what I consider our patriotic holidays ignored or only marginally acknowledged and another date (usually a Monday) passed off as "observed".
It disturbs me. How long before Thanksgiving is officially changed to the third Friday in November (rather than Thursday)?
