That's what State Rep. Joe Brennan thinks, and he's introduced legislation to make it happen. "It seems appropriate to me that veterans should have the right to observe the special day that is named after them in any manner they see fit," said Joe.
Under Brennan's legislation, veterans would be excused from work on Veterans' Day. Employers could either grant these employees a paid day off or simply approve the employee's request without pay.
Locally, state Rep. Bob Freeman has already signed on as a co-sponsor.
