  • I am in the same boat as PP. My hubby works for the gov so he has the day off. So in turn I get the day off.

  • Why anon 3:51? We shut everything down for Xmas and New Years etc. Why should MLK day be any different. Futhermore some of us are holding down a full-time job here and would like another day off throughout the year. You must not work!

  • My husband always appreciated the 96 hours off he gets in the military. It's usually referred to as "He Be, We Be" day....he be dead, we be off. I don't think it should be a federal holiday but whatever. 4 days off with pay rules.
