Yes there are businesses and govt services that are open today. DO you think some of the people that work there are angry that they have to come into work today? Should those places be best avoided due to disgruntled employees? Im talking about customer facing , retail places.

I work the 3rd Monday in January every year out of principle.

AND its nice to be in the office basically alone.

If they're pissed about working today they're probably pissed about every other work day as well.

I'm at work today. Not one fuck given.

I worked today. Zero fucks given. I worked on Kwanzaa and other phony holidays as well.

It's not a real holiday, no matter how much Reverend A and Jesse think otherwise

I view it as an "observance" rather than a real "holiday". If businesses are open, good for them - we're a capitalist nation.

My company paid us triple time holiday pay. Nobody bitched about coming in that day. But everyone called it Robert E Lee's birthday.

Just another day.

I'm open.

The lack of traffic on the way into the office this morning was nice...

Kids should be in school too.

Yes some are. I've got an annual wellness physical today. Apparently my DR. is racist.

No it is a real American holiday....you may not like or observe this holiday, but it comes around every year just the same.

This thread is racist.

Rev A and Jessie are both racist so they should approve of this thread.

Not angry at all. If I work a holiday I get a vacation day added.

Totally surprised the new Angry Birds Holiday episode is Popcorn Day. My wife made note of the color of the popcorn....


ETA if this holiday went as in the past it would be called National Civil Rights Day or National Rights Day. Just like they have done with Washington and Lincoln's Birthday changing to Presidents Day. There were lots of people who pushed the Civil Rights Agenda forward, no need to give one credit over the others.....isn't that the message they strive for, inclusive?

Fake holiday = me working.

Just another day at the steel mill
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 10:50:42 AM EST
I am getting paid today, but I don't have to work (state employee) but the only reason I am not working this is supposed to be one of my days off in our work cycle and has nothing to do with MLK, but I get paid for the holiday anyway. If I was working I would get double time.

I see you've met the staff at the Nevada DMV, Reno.

When I worked on holidays, I used to get more work done. Fewer people to bother me, no waiting for the xerox (the office printer) or copier.
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 11:02:48 AM EST
Was counting on a $15000 check to arrive in the mail today forgot it was a holiday for some, also left the trash on the curb today.

Meh my company observes Labor Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, And New Years. I am open every other day of the year #becausemoney
