Who doesn’t get MLK off?

I don’t, that’s who.

This past Monday I was sound asleep when my work cell phone rang at around 9:30am.  It was a coworker calling to see if I was coming in or if I had requested the day off.  This obviously came as a surprise.  Since when do you need to request a national holiday off?

Well according to the company holiday schedule, MLK is not an observed holiday.  Over the course of five post-college jobs I’ve never been employed by a company that didn’t observe MLK.  Luckily, I wasn’t fired.  Unfortunately, I did have to wake up and go to work.
