Working on Thanksgiving? You’re Not Alone
If you get today and Black Friday off this year, don’t take it for granted.
If you’re working today and/or tomorrow, Glenn feels your pain because he’ll be working as well (I’m be on vacation- hooray!). As a matter of fact, 36% of companies in the United States say that at least some of their employees are scheduled to work Thanksgiving and/or Black Friday.
And what’s more- 91% of the companies who have people work Thanksgiving or the day after say they give workers either overtime pay or double pay.
Only 9% of companies will have people work with no extra bonus money. So if you’re at one of those companies in the 9% and you’re not getting paid any bonus money for working over Thanksgiving break, you have every right to be pouty.
