Good Friday off?

Are the Mom's who work a conventional job outside the home getting Good Friday off, paid? Here in SC there are allot of closed places, but allot of offices that arnt off. Easter is a Christian Holiday, or Catholic holiday in my view but it seems odd anything will be open this Friday. I have a house closing of Friday. Even the attorneys are working.

  • Husband, kids and I are all OFF. I work for a school. If I worked for a regular company, I would not have off.

  • I have to work half a day Friday but that is because it is one of our snow make up days for the schools. Originally, we had the day off. People are VERY upset about it.

  • Good Friday is not a Holy Day of Obligation. It is, however, a day of strict fasting and abstinence.... So I don't think that qualifies it as a holiday. I have to work... and I work at a High School.

  • I'm not working because my sons attend Catholic School and daycare and they are closed. I had to use a vacation day.

  • A lot of business around here choose to close early on Thursday (Maundy Thursday, church at night), are closed on Friday also. But we're a pretty religious (not Catholic) area.

  • I worked at ONE place that gave us the option of taking Good Friday off... in exchange for another holiday.
