Due to the nature of my job, I don’t really have any public holiday besides first of January. Like this Easter holiday, I’m working on both Good Friday and Easter Monday, and I was on call during the Easter weekend. Although I get day in lieu for working on public holidays, it does not seem enough any more. I used to be able to feel satisfied with another day off, not any more. Heard some companies offer employees double or triple pay plus day in lieu for working on public holidays. Maybe I don’t have the skill or qualification to work for those companies, but I think I deserve more than just day in lieu. I don’t think I’m greedy.
