I Feel Jipped

I really like our new work schedule of working 4 ten hour shifts, but I feel totally and utterly jipped when it comes to holidays! The policy regarding holidays is that the week of the holiday you work 4 eight hour shifts. So for example on Labor day, I had a four day weekend which was great. Then I came back to work on Tuesday and worked thru Friday, which of course is normally my day off. So I got one 4 day weekend and then the next only 2 days.

They did this because we only get paid 8 hours for the holiday and if I had worked 3 ten's that week I would have been missing 2 hours and would have only worked 38 hours. I understand why it was done, but it just sucks! If you think about it in those 2 weeks I got 6 days off, 4 from the holiday weekend and then 2 then next. That is what I normally have off but it's 3 days each week. It was hard also coming in to work on Friday when I normally have the day off.

I know I shouldn't be complaining as I am really lucky to have 3 day weekends and most people only get 2 days off a week, but this sucks! I know I will be really looking forward to Friday this week!
