It further fuels my passion of hate for people. For all the talk that you really care about your employees(especially having to work Christmas Eve) it's all fluff when it comes to being greedy. Even then you've spent more money paying the hourly guys by having them come in and not letting them leave. I'm in management but still answer to the owner, so it's really just a payscale thing and it's balls.
In today's world where people can do most anything with a laptop at home that they can in an office, I don't understand why employers tell people they have to go in. If any of my employees feel it's not safe to drive (within reason, don't be taking advantage) and I can get them on their laptop and phone, they can and should stay home. We have a critical role in the organization but not one where it's critical to be onsite if it's not safe to be.
Today though, most of them were on vacation anyway.
