I went on corporates website and the verbiage seemed confusing, in one paragraph it listed thanksgiving as time and a half pay but also within that same sentence said team members get premium holiday pay.


So which is it, is it time and a half or holiday premium, and what is that?

I’m aware either way it’s not necessarily OT because that day is still considered a holiday, correct?

Okay maybe its because its midnight but this whole concept is going over my head. So normal pay at $12/hour would mean $18 at holiday pay. So would it be $19/hour on thanksgiving then $20 for 3+ hours worked between 10 pm- 8 am??

All hours worked Thanksgiving Day (12:01 am to 12:00 pm) are at time and a half. Assuming $12 regular, that becomes $18/hr.

the Thanksgiving differential was a separate line item at $1/hr.

Hours worked from 10pm Thurs to 8am Fri, IF MORE THAN 3 HRS, give you another separate line item on your pay stub with a $1/hr overnight differential.

Functionally, yes, that means that we get $19/hr to work Thanksgiving Day. If you're on the clock until at least 1am on Friday, then only the 2 hours from 10-midnight work out to $20/hr. But at midnight, the Thanksgiving bonuses run out, so any time on the clock after midnight goes back to your $12 base plus the $1 overnight differential.

And that's assuming they don't change the rules on us this year......

Why would you get paid time and a half on Thanksgiving from only 12 am to 12 pm Thanksgiving day? Shouldn't it be 12 am Thanksgiving to 12 am Black Friday?

Ok please do the math for me: I get paid $12.55 normally. I work Thanksgiving day 3:30 pm to 12 am Black Friday. What will I get paid ? Thanks...

Holiday Premium Pay is time-and-a-half. Everyone gets paid time-and-a-half instead of regular rate if they work on Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving holiday hours are only on Thursday from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Whether a TM also gets OT pay depends on state laws.

3:30-12 is an 8 hour shift.
Holiday pay based on time and a half at 12.55/hr equals 18.83/hr
8x18.83=$150.60 earned Thanksgiving day

Either way if you’re not working you get paid and if you do it’s time and a half. Okay I guess, when I was younger in retail I never really cared about working on thanksgiving I was all about the money. Now I have a family I’m sad this year about missing out on our traditions because I have to work more.

Not working on Thanksgiving. And I'm glad I'm not. Sure I can use a few extra bucks bv anyway it's going to get taken away in taxes. I'd rather not deal with stress from crowds thirsty for merchandise that will get returned two weeks later.

Today in huddle they said we don't get time and a half for holidays now. Also no $1/hour bonus, and no shift differentials. So what's going on? Which is right? How fucked over are we getting?
