I am against the government getting in the middle of anything. I am fine with employee's paying more for holiday pay, I am not for mandating that.
The reason why most people pay ,ore for holiday pay, is because without extra pay, you would get a lot of no shows.
Whether the government mandates the pay or not, its an excersise of free market ideas paying more to ensure you have staff show up on the holidays.
I see no reason, whether religious, traditional or otherwise where our government needs to tell some one when they can do business with consenting citizens, as well as getting in the middle of the decision to work or not, and how much they pay is.

The people who are crying about working a holiday need to grow up. It is part of some jobs today. I have worked every major holiday at somepoint in my life, even Christmas Day. It can suck but you have to understand that is part of the job you are in. It is better than not working. There are a lot of people who don't have a job who would love to be able to work Thanksgiving or at midnight on Black Friday if it means they get work.

Why should I get a paid holiday while someone has to work at Best Buy on Thanksgiving?
You shouldn't feel bad about that. We don't live in a socialist society. You don't have to worry about what is fair because what you've achieved is perfectly fair.
I work from my home. I don't have to deal with traffic, bad weather, worry about the cost of gasoline. While some people have to travel 50 miles in horrendous traffic in all kinds of weather for a job that may pay crap.
Is that "fair"? Of course it is.
