Do you have to work on MLK Day?

Time for a new poll. Do you have to work on MLK Day? I work for a small company and we have always worked on MLK Day, which I find a little wierd. Hows about you?

Come on, unless you're a teacher or a gov't worker you have to work.

When I was selling cars, we had to work 4th of July and other 'holidays'.

I work in a school district and I'm working today.

edit: I'm at work today. No actual work to do when there's nobody else here.

I have the option to work or not work everyday. Don't think my wife would like the outcome if I chose not to though.

With all the racial hypersenstivity, I'm surprised it isn't a National Holiday.

Hotels never close. I'm working today too. Doesn't seem like anyone who usually has the day off, took the day off. Probably short on money these days.

Off on paper, but in practicality I will get work done anyway just because some projects are finally at the point where it necessitates it.

maybe thats just an IHB thing but I could have sworn it was basically because of the union contracts/collective bargaining.
