    After all the days and hours of work leading up to Christmas we need more time off. We should get Christmas and the day after to recuperate.

    I always asked for as long of day as possible.
    Between holiday pay, and OT after 8 hours I would gross over 1000 clams for 10 or 11 hours of work.

    We used to get Christmas and day after. Can't remember exactly what we got in exchange. I think it was 2 additional vacation days, but I could be wrong.
