    Well my local McDonalds is open on Christmas and new year's day.

    However talking to somebody I know who works there, they only get the standard minimum wage. Talk about generosity :) :) :)

    We're sponsoring a local event on new years day (marketing exercise) which involves me working the full day along with all my colleagues, in return, I got 2 vip passes for the hogmany celebrations in Edinburgh and a day off in lieu. Although coming to think of it, I'll no really be able to go to crazy on hogmany as I have thousands of human beings to deal with the next day.....yay :oops:

    My employer before last used to hand out 10% bonuses at Christmas... I used to negotiate my pay over bank holidays, quadruple time wasn't unheard of since I was the only one willing to go in.
    Christmas was particularly lucrative.
