holiday pay. If you don’t work, pay for an extra day. If you do work, OT pay for the holiday and then vacation bank in lieu of holiday pay. one way to get more vacation time.
Note: "Holiday pay" has two different meanings.
"Paid Holiday": for many hourly TMs in stores and DCs means getting two Paid Holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Some hourly TMs don't qualify (in terms of average hours worked) for any paid holidays.
Most Corporate and executive staff receive six "Target recognized" Paid Holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I don't know if Juneteenth has been added.
"Holiday Premium Pay" means earning time-and-a-half for hours you work on the six "Target Recognized" days.

We get payed for holidays we don't work??? Hell, I didnt even geat paid for Easter....

Over your future career, you'll find most employers provide Paid Holidays, typically days the business is closed to observe a legal or recognized holiday.

People who work for Target Corporate or in ETL/SD positions get seven Paid Holidays (Juneteenth was just added).
Some hourly Target TMs who meet "average hours worked" will receive two Paid Holidays for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Some hourly Target TMs receive zero Paid Holidays as they don't meet the "average hours worked" rules.

Federal Government employees receive eleven Paid Holidays: New Year's Day, Martin Luther King, President's Day, Memorial Day, Juneteenth, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas (11 days paid not to work).
Most private-sector employers provide Paid Holidays for some of the Federally-recognized holidays.
If you work for a stock brokerage, your Paid Holidays include all of the 11 Federal holidays plus Good Friday, since the NYSE is closed on that day.
