    What National Holidays Do the US Private Sector Companies Usually Allow?

    their employees to take a day off? I'm just wondering because some companies are letting their employees take a day off for President's Day whereas some companies do not.

    I'm just wondering what holidays are usually considered HOLIDAYS for private sector companies in the US. For example, I know for sure that Thanksgiving day, 4th of July, Christmas, and New Year's day are.

    How about your companies?

    In the private sector, I think it's up to each company. Our airline observes six holidays a year, although we usually operate flights on three or four of them. On those cases, we earn holiday pay on top of our normal earnings that day.

    We get:

    Memorial Day
    4th of July
    New Years
    Christmas
    Thanksgiving
    Labor Day.

    We bill by the hour so taking days off hurts us. We get Christmas, New Years, 4th of July, Memorial day & Thanksgiving off. If the work load isn't too bad and the holiday is on a Thursday, we typically get Friday off.

    The work load this year is looking to be heavy :clap: I hope it gets worse so I can pick up some overtime :clap: :clap:
