I'm finally home from work after having to deal with a very rude researcher. I have to work tomorrow, but then I have the next 3 days off.

I guess going to college isn't technically Labor
Our school has no classes Monday but my teachers have assigned homework anyway.

My boss was out of town Thursday and most of Friday. Of course he showed up about 20 minutes before I was due to leave--I didn't even get to check in to this thread. But I get the weekend and Monday off--thank goodness our university does close for Labor Day. Sleeeeeeeep!

I'm celebrating labor this year by working the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend! I'm salaried and I worked all day Monday through Friday this week, so I'm technically even working for free. I'm not really complaining, though; I'm a desk salesperson at a bank and I won't be busy, the tellers will. I used to be a retail slave in Tourist Town so Labor Day Weekend meant being at work Friday through Monday, now I at least have Sunday and Monday off.

I was gonna get out at 3 or 3:30 on friday but was delayed by a quality issue at the end of the frickin day! Got out like 5:30. But at least we're into the 3 day weekend.

Not here it doesn't. We only get holiday pay on the actual holiday (Monday). Well I s'pose it is different for each company but that's the average procedure.

I just found out a half hour ago that I have to work Monday. Ruined my Saturday night *and* my Monday I thought I had off.

I get paid the same hourly wage no matter how many hours I work, or if I work a holiday. No such thing as time as a half for me. I also don't get sick pay or vacation. If I'm not there, I simply don't get paid. Period.
