I'm on call 24/7. Holidays don't stop bigshots from doing work. Those that are starting or launching new enterprises usually use the holidays to get shit done.

TLDR: Yes, I do.

Working on 24th and 25th. Off for 31st and Jan 1st. It's all good.


at least they are paying you 2x plus 8-10 hr of PTO ?


x1.5/hr for the Holidays. I didn't join the union so no paid day off, even on Holidays. I was offered a few times but I'd lose $12,000/year if I join. My fiance/legal domestic partner gets me health/dental insurance to avoid Obamacare penalty so I have no use for it.


union? there's no union here though

my company will pay 1.5x + 8 hr of PTO if you work on a major holiday..

i didn't know unions are still around


Unions are still very much alive in NY. Considering certain companies will fuck over their employees to maximize revenue, it's a good thing that they exist. Although I've been working as early as I was able to get my working papers, I've never joined one but I still benefit from their existence.

I''ve been dropping not-so-subtle hints to my boss that I want to work Christmas day, Boxing day and New Years day.
My family have pretty much stopped celebrating these holidays over the last few years so I'd rather work for the extra pay.

I wish I could maintain a job long enough to even think about if i'm gonna work on Christmas or not.

maximum time I've held a job was for 2.5 weeks, before the stress of it made me flip into a maniacal panic attack that got me an informal restraining order, and obviously fired.

Don't get me wrong, not working has its benefits, but 700 a month is jack shit, even if you count in all the subsidization. It's barely enough to pay my bills and feed me for a month, and I have almost no chance of even thinking of saving money if shit hits the fan.
