Martin Luther King Jr. Day is this coming Monday.
I realize this is a US centric holiday, but who gets it off of work?
I do, and work for a global company, but my wife doesn't and she works for a local/small US company.
I don't get the day off.
First time I've gotten this day off in nearly three years.
If you do get the day off, may I suggest donating time/money to the residents who happen to live on MLK Blvd. It really doesn't matter what city you're in, I'm sure they would appreciate any assistance.
If you don't get the day off, it means your boss is racist
What would MLK do if he was still alive today??

At my last company, New Year's Day wasn't officially a holiday either.
Our CEO wanted the corporate office to show "solidarity" with the field.
Don't get off for MLK day, but I do listen to "Mlk" by U2, and hope that one day, they will recognize Billie Jean King day.
How do you get your day btw?
is there someone who's still alive whom got a day named after him?
I'm a freelancer, so depends on me....
my wife works at an african-american owned firm, and NO, she does NOT get MLK day off.... amongst lots of internal company talk...
I work for myself, and find that MLK day and presidents day are difficult for me to take off. Since many people are working on those days, I get a lot of emails / phone calls from clients so it always feels like I might as well be working too.
"According to a recent survey from the Bloomberg Bureau of National Affairs, about 3 in 10 nonfederal employers will give all or most workers Monday off with pay."
All US Gov't workers will get the day off. Most private industries ignore the holiday though.
Black people take the day off regardless of if they get it or not. White people are well... white.
- I work for private engineering firm and don't get the day off BTW.d_rek
- your comment about black people seems a little stereotypicalmonospaced
- The comment about whites though, is spot on.albums
- oh I love ye all QBNmonospaced
- are you white? yes? shut up and get back to work!pango
pffff......it's a holiday for banks, schools, and post offices.
My agency will be open :(
< Works a university. Faculty and students get the day off. Regular working day for us staff, just a little quieter.
nope. we have no black people here.
I'm working but I do enjoy the lighter than normal traffic commute. Thanks for setting the freeways free MLK!
