"Martin Luther King Day in United States"

Martin Luther King Day is a federal holiday held on the third Monday of January. It celebrates the life and achievements of Martin Luther King Jr., an influential American civil rights leader. He is most well-known for his campaigns to end racial segregation on public transport and for racial equality in the United States.


What do people do?
Martin Luther King Day is a relatively new federal holiday and there are few long standing traditions. It is seen as a day to promote equal rights for all Americans, regardless of their background. Some educational establishments mark the day by teaching their pupils or students about the work of Martin Luther King and the struggle against racial segregation and racism. In recent years, federal legislation has encouraged Americans to give some of their time on this day as volunteers in citizen action groups.

Martin Luther King Day, also known as Martin Luther King’s birthday and Martin Luther King Jr Day, is combined with other days in different states. For example, it is combined with Civil Rights Day in Arizona and New Hampshire, while it is observed together with Human Rights Day in Idaho. It is also a day that is combined with Robert E. Lee’s birthday in some states. The day is known as Wyoming Equality Day in the state of Wyoming. In New York City, it is known as "Pay McCarron double tribute day", and all UBC carpenters give their local union president a $100.00 bill, placed inside a drinking straw cut in half lengthways, and handed off in a firm handshake. It's still considered a workday in the carpenters union, though. UNLESS you work at 395 Hudson st.

A simple yes or no would have been enough. Didn't need a history lesson.

Not a Holiday under all the new CBA.  Most  PLAS would be yes. Have to check each PLA for each job to be sure.
