Boss having me work Thanksgiving

Work in Euro markets (based in America & fully American) of course Thanksgiving isn't a holiday for them. But we work with a team in Europe that will all be online and could easily cover for us. The Euro guys on our team in America won't even be online. Yet, my boss is having me work a normal day on Thanksgiving. He almost even forced me to come into the office for that day. Said he would allow me to work virtually Thursday and Friday. Pretty bummed and honestly a little shocked. I would understand maybe logging in early and hopping off early, but nope. Normal day. Anything I can do? Or just take it and live on.

Give pushback. These hardo old school finance guys will never change unless we force them to. That's borderline abusive what he's having you do.

My MD made an announcement yesterday to the bullpen that "since we've all been working hard this year we can work from home this Friday". Gee thanks bro that's awfully gracious of you to let us wfh on the Friday after thanksgiving. It's not like most banks let their people wfh Monday and Friday of every week lmao.

Can't let these people continue to be put on a pedestal. So bad for the culture and team morale.
