In America they get holiday pay, and if they work it's considered double pay, but only because they're working. It's not holiday pay and then double pay. It used to be that most places payed you AND let you stay home.
There are a FEW stores that open on volunteer basis, but for the most part it's forced. Walmart/KMart/Target employees especially don't have a choice. Well they do, but it's work or be fired.
The holiday is dying because people are letting it. Too many take the lazy route, or the greedy route. We do have a choice to save it, and to me it is something worth fighting for.
