Dear Employers,

It's a crime to have your employees work a full day on the day before a major holiday.

And, while we're on the subject, it should be a crime to have your employees work the day after a major holiday.

Let's face it. Unless you're in some sort of service industry, nobody is going to get any work done on the day before or after. Motivation is at a low. Holiday-related stress is at a high. C'mon, give us a break.

Here's what we say: Half-day before major holidays or before the weekend of a major holiday (Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Memorial Day, New Year's Day). Full days off after those days for recovery purposes. Mandatory. For everyone in the ol' 9-to-5 office job.

That'll keep us from rioting. Thanks!
