Back in the day when I worked at Treasury Drug (now CVS) the store was open like 9-3. The pay was time and a half (or double) and there would usually be a ton of us asking to work that shift. I used to almost every holiday by CHOICE.
These big box greedy companies not only do not pay holiday anymore but they don't even recognize the holidays as it pertains to their employees only their customers.
Meet the new boss same as the old boss.
