Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Obviously, since I'm saying that on the radio, I didn't get the day off. And the odds are you didn't get the day off either.
According to a new survey, only 42% of companies say that all or most of their employees have today off as a paid holiday. 56% of companies say nope, EVERYONE'S working.
(We're not sure what's going on with the other 2% of companies. Maybe they just didn't want to respond?)
Those numbers are actually slightly WORSE than last year, when 1% more companies said all or most of their staff was getting the day off.
On the bright side, it's still way better than just five years ago, when only 32% of people were off.
