Did you have to work today, Juneteenth, a Federal Holiday?
June 20, 2022 10:39pm CST
Since I am retired, I'm not working any longer for a company or agency. My last position, I was facilitating workshops for a federal program on military bases. So, today would have been a holiday for me. It would have been unpaid though, as I was not federal employee; they simply would not have scheduled a workshop for that week. If I had still been working in the private sector, not associated with any federal programs, such as when I was working in sales and support positions, I might have had to work. Especially, in sales positions, companies use every opportunity to make money for every federal holiday by commercializing everything. I am happy to say that I watched a lot of the PBS (Public Broadcasting System) channel today. There were many documentaries that shared the history that was not taught in history classes, when I was growing up. It makes me want to learn more and more. Did you have a holiday from work today? Or did you have to work? If you had a work holiday, how did you celebrate today? Photo credit: Pixabay

I am an eBay seller and work for myself. I did not give myself the day off for Junteenth Day! I didn't work too hard though. I just had to go to my storage unit and get something that sold so I can ship it. After that I went grocery shopping.
