He informed me tonight that he is working on Easter, I laid the guilt trip on him big time!!! He's not sure if he gets double time or not.

I HATE it when they have to work the holiday's, but I do LOVE that extra $$ it brings in! I dont think there has ever been a time in our relationship that all holiday's were ever off.

-- I know that I've worked my fair share of holidays and so has my husband. Unfortunately it's the nature of the working game. We have obligations to our employers and we have obligations to our families and it's hard to balance the two sometimes. Maybe since he has to work Easter he can take off another day and spend some much needed quality time with you?!?!

Best of luck!

I hate working holidays too. I work Easter. It's not a paid holiday on the payroll. Sucks. They said Easter has never been a paid holiday. Where we get double time or anything Or straight 8 hours paid if we're off. They said since Easter is always on a Sunday. It's not fair the only M-F workers would get a holiday and never have to work Easter. All I get for Easter is my 1$ more an hour weekend differencial pay.
