Petition to Henry McMaster

Remove overtime charges in South Carolina for the confederate holiday or change it

Dear Henry McMaster, our south Carolina governor, please stop the South Carolina confederate holiday overtime and holiday pay because it's not what state workers and business want.   and we don't celebrate it.  Can we observe it ? employees and citizens and businesses don't want a bill or holiday pay for confederate memorial day.  Some of us work for this state.  Most of us live in this state.  OUR OPINION MATTERS.  We should stop billing businesses on the confederate holiday.  We should stop charging overtime on a confederate holiday.  Can we honorably recognized the civil war without causing pro confederate agendas?   We should not make everyone celebrate a confederate holiday that is involved with South Carolina.   We support a community day where we clean up road trash, clean up family graves or forgotten soldier graves, or help our community by showing no divisions and that we are American. We love one another. We all lost family in the civil war. We gained unity, freedom and humanity. Lets stop building divisions.   Lets stop  making everyone celebrate a confederate holiday.  Make it observed or make a change?  I live in this state and I care. I will not celebrate a confederate holiday. This is the United States of America and charging overtime is not appropriate. We can observe it and remember without overtime. note:  Memorial day was started by freed slaves in Charleston sc.  Celebrate unity.  A confederate holiday should not be billed to us or my friends or my neighbors.
