    because july 4th is on a sunday which is the weekend, so in order to give their employees the holiday off they give them monday.

    You are Un-American if you keep your office open on this day. My office will be closed.

    Re: why are most job places shut down on July 5th

    I wish we had the option this year to treat it as a floating holiday. I'd like to take the time off elsewhere, and I really probably could use the time in the office to get some work done.

    The 4th is on Sunday. Most places give people the day off the Friday before (if the 4th is on a Saturday) or the Monday after (if the 4th is on Sunday)

    I know of a couple of companies that are asking their employees to work, but giving them an extra day of PTO to use down the road.
