It’s just another “tweener” holiday nobody will have off unless you’re a federal employee. If you’re happy about gov’t employees getting yet ANOTHER day off the rest of America doesn’t, good for you.

Hoping this brings some healing to those who’s families were indentured slaves in this country. However I feel it’s wrong for the Federal Government to grant themselves paid holidays while the majority of the people that this is intended to honor are not paid for this holiday. Is that racist in and of itself?

I think it is important to take the time to teach the history of Emancipation Day, which is what we were taught the day was called. It commemorates exactly what the bloodiest conflict in US history was fought over.

This will be another day on top of losing what amounts to about a week a year because of California's infrastructure and fire issues.

Sadly the lost revenue from missing another day of production and shipping, while having to cover payroll, will take a healthy chunk out of the bonus pool.

Must it be observed by everyone? This seems like it will fall under MLK, Presidents’ Day, Columbus Day, etc. Or is all your production and shipping related to the federal government?

hey "Don' t worry about the Government"

Some civil servants are just like my loved ones
They work so hard and they try to be strong
I'm a lucky guy to live in my building
They own the buildings to help them along

It's over there, it's over there
My building has every convenience
It's gonna make life easy for me
It's gonna be easy to get things done
I will relax along with my loved ones

We tend to offer X days a year of holidays and try to keep that consistent adding or taking a day away based on when holidays fall so people can take a long weekend vs say a wednesday off.

Most of our business is private and public industry, but we certainly have a chunk of government.

If the shipping companies observe it we lose the days revenue regardless of what we chose to do.

This isnt even that. Juneteeth is supposedly the day where the last enslaved black people were freed from a confederate state, which was in Galveston Texas. Essentially this would equate to VE day whereas Pearl Harbor Day would equate to Emancipation Day.

If our union recognizes it next year, it will be just another double time day the guys work.

It shouldn’t apply to anyone registered democrap since they were the party that wanted to keep slavery alive.

Well I’m shocked. SCE just sent an email out that in the future if you would like to take time off to celebrate Juneteenth. Use 1 of our floating holidays.
I would have put money on getting it off.

Geez guys........ Who cares what it is called, we just got another summer holiday weekend to ad to Memorial, The 4th, and Labor Day. They could call it Russian Independence Day for all I care, I just like having another holiday.

Then again..... I treat Cinco De Mayo as an American holiday. St Pattys too. But I do like to drink!

Anybody know Thailand’s Independence Day? I’ll celebrate it too, if I only knew the date!

Yep, Republicans freeing of slaves. Thank you for reminding everyone how the right has always been in support of PoC.

Now, how about the democrats, who started the KKK?

You still cool with your roots to abject racism?

Thank you for being such a douche, that you litterally pee in your own face. In public view. Your dog must be proud.

I guess I'm not really understanding why so many of you have such a problem with a holiday that celebrates the ending of slavery when most of you have said you either don't get it off or won't be celebrating it? 🤷‍♂️

We don't understand why you didn't give Republicans the credit for ending slavery?

There was BLM in 1865. :eek: J/K It’s the actual date from what I read. They didn’t make the date up.

but in 2023 it will be on a monday, so a 3 day weekend/holiday

RDP could be the only forum with members that complain about free beer and new holidays...

Grads is like the kid in 5th grade dodge-ball that you saved till the end . . . You plucked-off the cool kids and girls at the feet to be nice, then you saved the Kook till the end and beaned him in the face in front of everyone watching on the sideline. 🤣 🤘 🇺🇸
