Why is working on the holidays such a big deal? ETA
Geez ok so this blew up pretty quick. Some of you all are missing the point. Most are complaining that those in retail have to work on a holiday and that they should be home with their families. Well that's true but shouldn't everyone else? Fact is the world doesn't stop on a holiday, it continues on. Does it suck that they have to work? Yes it does. But at least they aren't risking their lives and wondering if they will get to see the next holiday. Most employers will tell you when applying for a job if they have off on holidays or if there is a possibility of working. If you want holidays off then don't get a job that has the possibility of working on a holiday.
