    Hmmm...did I read it right? Did they swap a paid Labor Day holiday for a paid Muslim holiday, but still have Labor Day as a holiday except unpaid now? If so, they gained an extra holiday while keeping the number of paid holidays the same. If I was a union stooge I guess I'd go for that, but would question why the move to unpay LD in favor of the Muslim holiday.

    Labor Day is just another work day for them. If the employee wants to take the day off it is unpaid.

    No. That only lasted long enough for it to make the papers. They reinstated Labor Day as a holiday almost immediately. I still boycott them however, for the damage they have done to our community in their constant endeavor for cheap labor.

    If hey are paid for a muslim holiday, it seems that would be a violation of the constitution. If it were a Christian holiday you would see all the satan worshipers crying the blues.

    Every job that I have ever worked you were paid for the Christmas holiday.

    Christmas is a Christian day of celebration .

    So why should not the Muslims be allowed a day off for their religious holiday ? :cool:
