Father (Peace be upon You) Satan (Peace be upon You), I call to you (Peace be upon You) from the deepest parts of my heart, I praise your (Peace be upon You) name with every breath of my body, I worship you (Peace be upon You) with every fiber of my being. You (Peace be upon You) shown me what true strength is. You (Peace be upon You) have shown me what true love is. Out of the darkness you (Peace be upon You) came to show me the true light.
My master (Peace be upon You), my father (Peace be upon You) and my friend (Peace be upon You) what a great gift that is.
Hail to the King (PBUH)!

Lol I worked today, fun.
Well, it is fun when you get 1.5X-2.5X your normal wage.

couldn't understand a word of that. lol
thanks for making the thread OP. I never really appreciated how good our work environment was until i left canada.
i knew an older lady who worked for a hotel for 14 hours/day while only getting paid for 8. she couldn't leave because she was in her 50s and wouldn't be hired elsewhere. i knew guys who worked for swanky restaurants who routinely worked 12+ hour days but got paid on a per diem/night basis (30 pounds a day) and got shafted on tips (the restaurants kept all tips). too scared to try to unionize because people are easily replacable.

Labour Unions are very different now than the ones that earned us these rights over 100 years ago. Watching my uncle get paid $98/hr on a holiday that he chooses to work really grinds my gears.
depending on your situation you might get paid nothing extra even if you work that day (salary) or maybe 3x or more your normal rate,
Wage inequality and uneven regulations is still the norm in this country.
