Happy Holidays and All the Best

Times have been tough, no doubt about it. Recession (near Depression), bailouts, record unemployment – all added up to human despair on a scale never before witnessed in recent US memory. At times like this, it becomes all the more important to remember the important things in life, your friends, your loved ones, and compassion for those less fortunate than you (yes, no matter how bad things are for you, there is someone who is worse off and needs your help).

And remember Hope. Hope that things will only get better. That humanity, such as it is, will rise to the occasion and find decency and kindness at its core, undimmed by brand name materialism, overseas wars and runaway debts.

Let’s raise a cup of cheer as 2009 retreats into the night, making way for a 2010 that promises to better. We’re all in this together, and together, we’re going to get through this.

Happy Holidays!

    what if I was told to go home early the day before the Holiday and I was scheduled to work 8 hrs and was will to work my shift but an email was sent to the office 11/22/ 17 stating we had to be out by 615 and there was a problem with the alarm I wasn’t out till 638 but my work only wants to pay me for 6.15 hours. Is that legal?

    Excellent advice, we need divine assistance on this one. Hopefully the government makes the right economic decisions, because they are making some risky decision (time will tell).

      Holiday Pay… If you started shift before midnight. Do you only get holiday pay for hours within that day? Or do they have to pay holiday for whole shift? Going into the following day?
