I'm a federal contractor, so I just got the confirmation about half an hour ago that we were getting paid time off. I assumed our contract said something about observing all federal holidays, so I was just waiting for the official word to actually celebrateI wish Texas would give us the day off tomorrow.
Obviously.All anyone cares about is "how much is our bonus this year?"
lol I work at a Texas hospital where I'm considered employed by the state (you can guess the one). If a holiday falls on the weekend we don't get it, we only get holidays that are on a weekday. So July 4th? even though we work that day (I'm off yay) they don't get holiday pay for it edit: but I get 8 hours of PTO a month, 8 hours of sick time a month, and 8 hours for every recognized holiday (around 12 year) I can either take the money for or take as paid time off as long as I use it within a yearI wish Texas would give us the day off tomorrow.
Still have my beloved Snuffles from when they first came out in '81! Much like yours, he is beaten up and well-loved, but still around! They made Snuffles to last (with a little assistance, but I don't think they planned on a small child... plucking it bald).
