My mom works for the school system so she doesn't really get any pay during the holidays. One of her paychecks for Christmas vacation was literally two bucks. TWO. BUCKS. And she said she got the largest vacation paycheck aside from her boss. Summers are the same way. There's been Christmases where all we ate was school food my mom sneaked out before the start of vacation (otherwise, it would have just been dumped). We literally could not afford to MOTHERFUCKING MCDONALDS.
Dad only gets base pay for his job at Trugreen during Christmas and vacations.
I only have work study so no pay for me during holidays or if I miss a day, either. I'm looking for a spare time job or writing gigs to get extra money.
