    Are we getting paid for Christmas since it falls on Saturday? Also why are we not observing the Christmas Holiday and having Mon the 27th off?

    Yes we get paid. A holiday is not observed as a UPS holiday on a Monday unless it falls on Sunday.

    People are amazed when I tell them we work long hours all peak and get no days off at Christmas. That is the tradeoff for a wage and benefit package that is the envy of the industry. Or so they tell me.

    YES another 8 hours of pay. Next week is even better. Double time and half if you work friday plus 8 hours for Sat.

    Money isn't everything--some of the most truly happy people I have ever met didn't have a pot to piss in.

    I never heard Upstate say he was one of those people.
    Everyone at UPS works here for the money ... it is not the type of place one works at for social interaction, charity, etc.

    I find that the ladies really dig that dust, sweat, and box stink as well.
