    just a curious question..........

    i thought companies were not allowed to open on labour day ?

    has the government eased up on companies who open on "holidays" ?

    companies are allowed to be open. i think they just have to give you stat pay or another day off or someone else should probably answer this question.

    we are a bunch of walking slaves, i tell you

    im working. yay double time and a half.

    holidays are meaningless to me anyways, and labour day was never a big deal for me, so meh.

    *just doesnt want to work on thanksgiving this year*
    missed out on all the turkey goodness last year :(

    and thats were it all begins, a few, cause havoc for the many

    holidays are a chance to be human, to relax and ease the often tense soul

    I'll probably be working on labour day...I've basically worked every day for the past 3 weeks, but that is the nature of my profession....and overall, I'm not complaining really, because the majority of what I do is out in the public, and not stuck behind a desk.

    They have to pay you time and a half. It's only an extra $3/hour, but hey.

    I think I'm working. As I do every fucking holiday. I get double time and a half though. But still, I'd rather spend time with my friends.

    Get "sick" and come with me to the ex :D We can zoom while we're there.

    If I'm sick, it'll be because I'm going to Montreal. I doubt I can do that though. :(

    I worked May 2-4, and Labour day every year for five years.

    I have an office job now, so I don't really work anymore.

    I have quit my job, so I really won't be working:D
