As an American who has taken time off to vote (not even the whole day, mind you). They make your life hell until they forget about it or find the loosest reason to fire you. Even being gone for a couple of hours to vote impedes their ability to sweat you for every penny they can. the election is damned. If there’s one law about working in America you should know, it’s at-will employment. No reasons required, either party can terminate employment at a moment’s notice.
Many minimum-wage workers still have to work during national holidays- sometimes more than normal, because middle-class folks are out and about instead of working. Just making it a holiday likely isn’t the right solution, but having the vote held over multiple days and making mail-in voting easier would be great.
