An employee gets a day off with pay on these holidays:
New Years Day
Martin Luther King Day
But hourly (non-salaried) employees are only paid overtime on these days:
Shouldn't I get paid overtime for working on every holiday that a 'regular' employee gets off? If I was an hourly employee in the Sales Department I'd have the day off. Somehow this does not seem fair. (Yes, I know, not everything in life is fair.....But still, this doesn't seem cool).
While we're on the topic....
I am still feeling like a fish out of water in many ways at work. It's tough to bond with co-workers when your back is to them (this thought is echoed by at least one other web person at the station) since you're not really a part of conversations, whether they relate to News or not. I feel that I am not really making friends as easily as I usually do. This also has to do with my odd schedule since I'm not really able to socialize a few nights of the week since I need to be in bed so early. Doesn't help that I work one night per weekend.
