  • I have had to work all of the holidays. It wasn't my favorite thing to do but I was paid to do it. I was blessed to have a job so i didn't complain.

  • If you are religious, then you should be able to get a religious exemption.

  • I have not had to work on any holidays ( I was a teacher for yrs), but my dh has been known to work on every holiday for many yrs and will continue to do so if need be... (he's a firefighter) and to us tho it's a special day, we just make our holidays a bit different if the call comes...
    But, if your working is hindering your religious beliefs, then you have the right not to work that day... I would check with your employing hand book or rules...
