Working during the royal wedding?
That Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting married isn't necessarily good news to everyone. Their wedding day has been declared a public holiday in Britain, but the Daily Mail published an article yesterday noting that the monarchy plans to maintain its scheduled openings of royal residences on April 29. Translation: Staff at Windsor Castle and royal palaces in Scotland should not expect the wedding day off. (Staff at royal residences in London presumably already planned to work.) A spokesman for the Royal Collection was quoted as saying, "Members of staff at the attractions will be working as normal on April 29. It will be a great day to visit."
Meanwhile, the Associated Press reports that subway drivers are threatening to strike April 29 in disputes over holiday pay. The transit workers' union has put out a statement that the story is "premature to say the least."
