My children had no school last Monday in celebration of Lincoln’s Birthday, and today in honor of Presidents Day, or Washington’s Birthday.
At the Los Angeles Times, we create a newspaper everyday, rain or shine, holiday or no holiday. For us workers that work on a holiday, we are compensated with a day and a half of additional pay, besides our regular pay.
The newspaper urges non-essential employees to take the day off, so our facility was only manned with essential employees like myself today. And I’m very pleased to say, we had our best day of production in over two weeks.
