    How about because you'd be getting less than what your contract promises
    you? The standard America's Choice plan includes six holidays, and if any
    of them is on a day which is off-peak anyway, you are losing out on one
    sixth of your free days, so they give you the next day to compensate. If
    they didn't, you and a lot of other people would bitch about it.

    How about because you'd be getting less than what your contract promises
    you? The standard America's Choice plan includes six holidays, and if any
    of them is on a day which is off-peak anyway, you are losing out on one
    sixth of your free days, so they give you the next day to compensate. If
    they didn't, you and a lot of other people would bitch about it.
