In my office there are 31 people... and 24 will be taking off for jewish holidays.. as well as christmas, christmas eve and other christian holidays!! who do you think is stuck with all the work when 3/4 of the office is out!?!?!?!
Days off for Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, etc. are taken as vacation days and are deducted from the employee's available bank of paid time off.

In a year like this one, observant non-exempt employees are using most of their year's vacation to observe these holidays, the same way any other employee can use their vacation days to go to Aruba.

It is what it is.

Please help a dumb Gentile -
Where does it say you can't work on these days?
Christians are allowed to work on Christmas, Good Friday, any day except Sunday.
The 4th
commendmant. "Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy" by abstaining from productive activity. We believe that those holidays are like a Sabbath day, where all forms of work including driving is forbiden.It shall be a Sabbath day into you. As for taking off early on Yom Kipper, it is because our holidays begin at sunset and end at sunset, on Yom Kipper we are required to fast, therefore we must eat before sunset.

A lot of people are forced to work Christmas Day or they lose their jobs. Why should it be different for everybody else?
If they are forced they should file a discrimination complaint.Many people volunteer to work for the exta pay.

Agreed and may I add that they are all "sheep" following a set of ridiculous rules that some "men" wrote centuries ago to control the pagan populace.
Example: Jews cannot use a motor vehicle or a telephone after sundown
Friday night. Who came up with that?
Orthodox Jewish women must go to the Synagogue and rinse themselves out after their periods in a vat of water there. I am so sure God insists on that one!!! It is a good thing to have faith and a God. To be a nutcase is quite another.
the answer to not using the phone came from God. As far as going to the Mikvah, it makes her husband desire her more after the seperation.
