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.
