I'm so pissed off I could scream. I can see why our boss told us in an email rather than face to face AND on a day she wasn't in the office. Seems that the new policy is that if your regularly scheduled work day falls on a holiday you're expected to work that day unless you take it as vacation! We do get paid 2x regular wages but frankly I'd like the days to spend with my family. As it is, Thanksgiving, the following day, Christmas Eve (which the company made as a holiday this year offsetting the fact Christmas falls on a Saturday), and New Year's Eve will all be spent in the office and as I work until midnight it's not like I can make any parties. This policy does not apply to management. This was just sprung on us today. Isn't that swell?
