McDonald's: Don't make employees work on Christmas Day

McDonald's is usually only closed one day a year: Christmas Day. As employees, this one day a year is our opportunity to spend time with family and friends. Yet McDonald's has made the decision at the corporate level to open on Christmas Day this year. While some stores are not opening until 11AM on Christmas Day, that opening time still cuts in to our family celebrations. Corporate employees still get Christmas off, but they think it's okay for store employees to have to work on the one holiday we're supposed to have off. We have also been informed that we won't be receiving holiday pay for working on Christmas.

      Because Mcdonalds can afford to give their employees this day to be with family on our Saviours birthday and America can go without a burger for one day. Employees should be allowed to spend this time with thier children. I cant believe this is up for debate!??? Is corporate working???? why not???? Theres your answer.

      I don't understand why Christians cannot get off on their holidays. Other people get off on their holidays. Also when you put God first, you don't have to worry about keeping your business opened on Holy days, God will supply all your needs!
