Sept 7 and Sept 21 declared non-working holidays

Holidays are always a very good news for us employees (^_^) not only do we get some chance to rest we can have 30% additional pay if we do work on Holiday!

And here are news from ABS-CBN:
MANILA - President Arroyo on Friday declared September 7 and 21 as non-working holidays throughout the country.

In a press statement, Malacañang declared September 7 as a national day of mourning for the late Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) leader Bro. Eraño 'Ka Erdie' Manalo. All flags will be flown at half mast on Monday.

The President had earlier declared September 21 as a non-working holiday to commemorate Eid Al Fitr or the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

INC spokesman Bienvenido Santiago on Friday announced that "the interment of the late Brother Eraño G. Manalo, Executive Minister of the Church of Christ, will be held on September 7, 2009, Monday, 12:00 noon at the Tabernacle located near the Central Temple."

Santiago said the interment will be held "while awaiting the construction of the mausoleum to which his remains will be transferred."

He said the mausoleum will be built near the monument of the Ka Erdie's father, Felix Manalo, "also within the grounds of the Iglesia ni Cristo Central Complex."

The Philippine Air Lines (PAL) on Friday announced it was offering special discounted tickets for INC members abroad who will be paying their respects to Manalo. PAL Chairman Lucio Tan also paid his last respects to Manalo.

"Upon instructions of our Chairman Dr. Lucio Tan, PAL is offering special discounted ticket prices to INC members who may wish to come home. This is PAL's modest way of showing respect and camaraderie with millions of INC members worldwide who are mourning Ka Erdy's passing," PAL President Jaime J. Bautista said.

Now I'm quite confuse, in September 7, 2009 today is this a double pay or just 30% additional?
as said in the news it is really like end of Ramadhan no work and if you work double pay?
hmmm your insights are very helpful.
