Happy Holidays—Now Get Back to Work

From a New York Times column by Paul Krugman headlined “Happy Holidays. Now Get Back to Work.”:

Christmas will be on a Sunday this year. Will American workers miss out on one of the few paid holidays most of them get?

I haven’t managed to find data on how many workers get to take the next day off when a major holiday falls on a Sunday. What we do know is that Christmas is one of only five paid holidays available to a majority of U.S. workers. And it’s not as if Americans have many other opportunities to spend time with their families. Compared with many other wealthy countries, we stand out as the no-vacation nation.
