Not everyone will sleep in on Family Day

Future Family Day in BC causes stress for some parents with kids

Re: We’re still waiting for Family Day (The Gen Y Lens, Oct. 7)

I’d like to point out to Kyle Slavin that the only people sleeping in on Family Day across the country will be government employees, teachers, bank employees (although even that is changing) and the others fortunate enough to work a Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., work week.

Many more will be scrambling to find babysitting arrangements for young children who would normally be in school so they can go to their jobs in the many stores and businesses that are open seven days a week.

Of course, these same places are open so that those lucky enough to have the day off can spend it shopping.
