Maine Veterans Day, Day Off

The state of Maine is considering a bill that would give veterans a paid day off for Veterans Day,
Nov. 11th.

Bill HP0146, LD 169 would mandate that any employer with more than 50 employees allow a
veteran to have a day off with pay for Veterans Day.

Although Veterans Day is considered a holiday, the majority of employers do not close for the day
and if an employee does take the day off, it is without pay.

Everyone living in Maine please contact your state Senators and Representatives ask them to
cosponsor and vote for passage of HP0146, LD169. Our veterans deserve this day off with pay.
