Did You Know That We Don't Get Paid To Work On Feb 29th??

I donít know about you guys but I donít think that we get enough public holidays.

My colleague has just sent me a petition which is trying to get the government and businesses to give us the 29th of Feb off work since we donít actually get paid for it!!

February 29th is the extra day we all get because 2008 is a leap year.

Just think of all the wonderful things that you could do if we got the 29th of Feb off work.

If you donít think itís fair to work for free then please go the the ďFreeday FridayĒ website and sign the petition: Freeday Friday

- Iíve even joined the Facebook group ďAre You Having It offĒ

Letís make it happen

um...
If you're an hourly-paid employee, then you will get paid, and if you're a salaried worker, then what difference does it make?
Surely you're better off, as you work 3 out of 4 Febs and are getting paid for a day you don't have to work...

petitions don't do squat, if everyone took the time to write a letter instead (even if it was a template and just added their name and sent it) it would have more impact due to the massive amount of mail!

i might just take the 29th off.. hell might even take the whole month of march off

the 29th is a Friday. Who actually does anything productive on Fridays anyway?

Salary is usually yearly. So you do get paid for that day unless you don't consider it part of the year. If that is the case I don't know what to say.
