    It's a mixed landscape. The West has always been more sparsely settled in places than the East coast or the flyover country. Largely due to geography. There are town councils, city councils and in some places county councils. Depends upon the charter and incorporation agreements.

    Cool. Interestingly, I believe these local governments spawned most of our Blue Laws.

    They have a right to strike. But the employer has a right to fire them for it.

    Until Ohio law was changed, the only form of county government was a 3 Commissioner system, as a county is a "subdivision" of the state.

    You may or may not have read about the Cuyahoga County corruption scandal where the FBI nabbed crooked officials, including the County Auditor, and a Commissioner, that is when voters took it to the ballot and eliminated the Commissioner system.

    They already are open on other holidays so employees already know they might have to work on holidays.

    Certainly having another layer of government may lead to greater opportunities for corruption. However, I think there is more danger in making government a unity monolith. I like that the US has federal, state and LOCAL governments. This allows for community fine tuning in law. With our vast variety in environment, geography and people, having a local government is essential in my book.

    State law also permits Township's a legislative function, but they can ONLY pass Resolutions, monetary punishment's, no jail permitted.

    Must be different in your state where apparently folks have never been around a retail environment. Do you have grocery stores that are open at least the first part of Christmas day? How about 7/11s or Plaid Pantry, do you have those in your state? Hasn't it been that way for your entire life (if you're in your 30s or 40s)?

    Who did you think operated those stores on Christmas day, elves? But yes, all employment contracts I've seen in my life include a holidays section that details what they legally need to disclose.
