C'mon, We're Waiting
Us private sector folk have been awaiting a similar (though naturally scaled-down) announcement regarding the holiday for people who actually have to work for a living. But none has come, so we must assume that we will be doing double-holiday-time on Friday. Friday is the usual day off, and National Day also falls on Friday this year. So we'll have to celebrate both events at the same time. It's tough in the private sector.
That's fair enough, but what I cannot understand is why Government employees, who, as far as I can tell only work five hours a day for about 250 days a year, will get three days off (plus Friday). Are they more loyal and nationalistic than everyone else? Maybe they are. That'll be the reason.
