It’s Presidents Day! Local buses are running holiday schedules, traffic was really light this morning, and it’s free to park on city streets.
My wife has the day off today. I, however, do not. (I post this from work, of course.)
So: how many American workers get Presidents Day off? I’m more interested in percentage of the workforce than raw numbers, but any stats would be interesting.
A related, expanded questions: On which holidays are the fewest number of Americans working, and which ones really don’t impact the workforce at all? I’d guess Christmas, New Year’s Day, Independence Day and Thanksgiving day are all way up there on the list. And that relatively few people get Columbus Day off anymore. Anyone know any detailed info?
