Why has some of the larger companies such as Waste Connection and others decided that Martin luther King day is a more important day than Memorial Day? I never read about MLK in my history books so why is he so important to ignore Memorial day and give him the holiday?????? That really sucks!!!!

I could open a can of worms on this one.But let's not.Some Companies take MLK day off because they have a number of black employees.(Their words,not mine) At my employment,I'm off on Memorial Day and MLK day is an ordinary day.Don't fret about it,it aint gonna change.

Well you are about a stupid sum bit aren't you.
W/C still counts memorial day as do all govt agencies and banks.
Why wasn't he in your history book ? Probably because he wasn't history yet, you moron ! He was an important black man, but not being a black man, it's just not that special to me.

If you want something to bitch about MLK day, why did he get one and not ELVIS ? Now there is an injustice if I ever seen one !

Thank you, Thankyouverymuch !
