My better half has to work on almost every holiday. But so do most people who work in the hospitality industries unless they are in administration/accounts. If in the front lines well somebody has to do it. Will be moreso once the IR's are built.

The good thing is I can take a day off on my b'day, the mark of the end of my toddlerhood! :lol: Actually not really a happy event, when the cold reality kicks in, doh! :evil:

I'd rather work on public holidays and encash it later ;)

If you work in the Hospitality Industry there is nothing to encash. It's part and parcel of your employment contract. You will get a day off in lieu and that's all.
