Well, you will still get your Social Security check and any other savings you've have coming so I don't follow.

Well it's you're as in you are, not your. Anyway, I would much rather have the day off, and since I'm retired I get paid anyway for doing nothing.

Exactly. They don't deduct from SS or any pension you might have if there's a holiday.

Now, self-employed people are another story. If I don't work today, I don't get paid by anyone.

I don't know what you are talking about. I get paid for not working. I am retired.

As far as I am concerned being retired and not having to go to work greatly, greatly outweighs getting paid for a holiday. Lots of folks even have to work tomorrow. My job will be spending time with the grandkids since the parents need to work and day care is closed.
