Tomorrow, Tuesday, is the Australia Day public holiday.

Australians have been done out of a long weekend this Australia Day, with the public holiday falling on a Tuesday.

But research shows that up to 500,000 workers will blow off work today anyway to snare themselves a four-day weekend.



  1. yeah...I dunno what happened. Just a massive headache popped up all of a sudden like.

  2. It's called 'making the bridge' here, sometimes I've had all of two students in on a Friday when the public hol's been on a Thursday.

    The UK gets round it by making almost all public holidays the nearest Monday to the actual date.
