HATTIESBURG,MS (WDAM)-  While most people were enjoying having this Labor Day off, others were clocking into their J-O-B.

Here at the Corner Market it was business as usual for two deli clerks and their assistant manager. You would think they would feel disappointed about working on this holiday, but they say its just the opposite.

One worker said, holiday or not, with the economy in the shape it's in, she's just thankful to be working.

"How do I feel about working on labor day? I'm very thankful I have a job, so many people don't. So, what else can I say. I'm glad to be here!," said Corner Market Deli Clerk, Betty Slay.
