No servile labor on Holy Days of Obligation?
#11
I've been declined job offers for not being willing to work Sundays.

"But I'm free for the other 144 hours in the week!"
"I'm sorry, but Sunday is our busiest day, and we need people working then."

My relatives think I'm a fool.

Self employed here.  I don't bother trying to figure out the fine distinctions between servile and non-servile labor and just take holy days off.  Since I'm generally working 6 day weeks I figure an extra four days a year of abstaining from business matters isn't going to hurt me.

That's the beauty of self-employment and subsidiarity. If we somehow returned to a country of small businesses we could do as we see fit. Here in Chi-raq before the world lost it's mind even the Protestant and Jewish Businesses gave Good Friday off. Not essentials like grocers or butchers, but the manufacturers. That all changed.
In fact in those days I had more paid holidays than after the insanity.
