Presidents’ Day

Not only is the pay for corporate workers in the toilet, they also have fewer holidays.

I remember when I was a kid, both Washington’s and Lincoln’s birthdays were holidays, at least in California.  Wikipedia states that Lincoln’s birthday was never a federal holiday.  Then at some point in the 1980’s the two were combined into a single holiday, Presidents’ Day (which will never land on either Washington’s or Lincoln’s actual birthday).

Every business I worked for in the 1980’s and 90’s observed President’s Day.

Now, none of the businesses I work for observe it.  It’s business as usual except for banks and the government.

For all you consumers who might have the day off, there is a Presidents’ Day Sale near you.
