Many Will Spend Thanksgiving With Colleagues
LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:
Our last word in business today is working turkey. Seems many of us will be spending Thanksgiving holiday with colleagues. According to the jobs website Careerbuilder.com, nearly one in five workers said they plan to celebrate the holiday with coworkers. Maybe they have to work that day, or maybe they just can't get enough of their officemates. Most likely, it's the former. The survey also asked workers who they would rather spend Thanksgiving with, and only 1 percent said they'd want to celebrate with co-workers. Ninety percent said family. The remaining nine percent said neither. And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Linda Wertheimer.
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Well, Linda, I'm going to be working Thanksgiving. Aren't you working Thanksgiving, right here?
WERTHEIMER: I totally am.
INSKEEP: And it's not because I - it's because I can't get enough of you guys.
(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)
INSKEEP: I'm Steve Inskeep.
