I overheard this meeting with the manager. They need to fix the septic and pumps at work. So they are looking to shut down 2 days to 7 days to fix it. It wouldn't be until at least the spring when the ground thaws. But still if I loose a week of work that's $450.

During the holidays my previous employer made us take two weeks off and you have to put in your vacation or no pay.

@ricki_911 We only get paid the holidays and the days the company makes us leave we have to use our own vacation or you just don't get paid.

@infatuatedbby I'll ask him but I'm pretty sure we get paid our vacation pay eery pay instead of lump sum.

Can you work in a vacation during that period so you won't lose your pay? And they should tell the employees now so they can be making plans for that time. They should not have to get the news on the grapevine.

four hundred fifty dollars is a huge sum of money, those plumbers better do their job, and fast.

That really will be a great loss of money due to the fix. I hope they can complete the fix in the 2 days rather than the 7.
