Well, this sucks.
Since I'm on contract I don't get any more than the bare minimum of paid holidays. Thus when Equitable gets the day off, I don't get paid for that day unless it's a "big" holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas. Anything else (day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, etc.) I have to work extra hours to make up the time for, or take a short paycheck.
I try to only work an hour of overtime at a time, since OT was one of the things I really disliked before. Well, today I found out that Equitable also takes off Veteran's Day, adding another eight hours to the pile. Working an hour of overtime per day, I don't get to leave at 5:00 until the middle of December.
