    Why would an employer demand you to work a holiday weekend?

    What kind of employer calls in one particular department at 4 pm Friday before a holiday weekend and demands they work all weekend? Due to the buyers not doing their job correctly we in accounting now have to fix their mistakes. This is very time consuming and the volume is outrageous. There are three of us and the first two said they couldn't, they were going out of town and I just said I couldn't. It would not surprise me if we get written up for not coming in. I find this behavior from management very stressful and if I could I would just quit.

    Where do you work? There are places that get the most customers on holidays. Car dealerships are usually open on holidays and have big sales. Some grocery stores are open on holidays. Also restaurants. There are many places open on holidays.
