A change in the calculation of holiday pay could be “a significant monetary loss” for a low-paid worker often forced into overtime to make ends meet, the TUC official said.
One of my personal bugbears is bank holidays, and the demand for more of them. I often find myself trying to get people to just think hard about it, and tell me how it makes people better off. Businesses pay people to produce things. Paid holiday is part of that pay. If a business is forced to give people more holiday they aren’t going to take hit, not in the long-term at least. They’ll just reduce how much people get per hour to adjust for it.
