    Somehow, I don't think that preparing the venue on time is going to be a problem.

    They don't forget about prepping for events.
    All it takes is paying people to work.
    Weekends - holidays - People will work when you pay them.
    Apple appears to have plenty of money, so no problem.

    Exactly. This isn't a high school kid's oral presentation. This is a the highly anticipated and carefully planned launch of a multi-billion dollar company's next flagship product, which will affect the value and revenue of that company for the fiscal year to come.

    Funny, usually I'm on top of Apple events. I had no idea the keynote is next week, the 9th. Maybe, I'm not anticipating an upgrade this year, therefore feeling a sigh of relief.

    A little perspective - Amazon once sent their own courier to my house to deliver a CD on a Sunday, the day before release, because the next day was a bank holiday and they didn't want me to miss out, even though I had the digital version.

    Seems irrelevant right? But I'm sure if a company can reach out and do that for something that doesn't really matter, somehow I don't think Apple are going to forget to hang up the decorations for one of the biggest tech events of the year. They will definitely find more than enough people to do it and they certainly won't have forgotten. If they can't get the people, I'll cross the Atlantic myself and do it...

    EDIT: Just spoke with the guys, they did forget and ask that you don't mention it in public to embarrass them. Your contribution has been noted and you will be rewarded suitably... Phew, that one was close.

    These events are set up by professionals using available labor. Not to worry is will all go off without a hitch.

    Why would we worry with ipadPro watching over everything for us.

    So you are also implying that Apple store will also be closed on Monday? I'm pretty sure they've been open for business on Labor day.

    There are people that works on weekends as well so I'm pretty sure they will.

    As all above post mentioned, do you have a source that says that it is illegal to work on Labor day? Schools are closed for labor day and that's just about it. Of course, mail won't be delivered on that day either. But nothing says that you cannot work on Labor day.

    If it's illegal to work on that day, how is it that so many do? If no one was allowed to work, no stores would be open, no TV/radio stations would be on air, no movie theaters would be showing movies, no restaurants would serve customers. If there was a storm that knocked out your power, would you just sit in the dark until the holiday was over?

    It's not even true that government workers cannot work. What about police officers? National Park employees? Fire departments? (burn, baby, burn).

    Not sure where you get this stuff, but it's pure poppycock.

    And just so you know the details.

    Legal holidays are also referred to as legal paid holidays or legal public holidays. All terms mean official holidays as designated by Federal, state or municipal laws, or related regulations.

    Legal Holidays for Private-Sector Employees
    You might be surprised to learn that there are no such things as Federally-mandated "legal holidays" for private-sector employees, whether paid or not.

    That's because the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the "main" Federal law that regulates work hours and pay, does not require private-sector employers to grant any holiday time off to their employees.

    The FLSA also does not require public-sector employers to grant holiday time off to their employees. However, legal holidays for Federal government employees are designated by a different law that is specifically for such employees. More information is below.

    Most private-sector employers still voluntarily grant time off to some or all of their employees on so-called legal holidays. They do so to attract and retain employees in competition with other employers, just as they voluntarily grant other benefits that are not required by law.

    Under the FLSA, employers also don't have to pay their employees more than the standard rate for overtime work on legal holidays. More than the standard rate, such as double-time pay, is strictly a matter of agreement between employers and employees or employers and labor unions.

    In other words, the FLSA treats legal holidays (or legal paid holidays, legal public holidays or any others) exactly the same as "regular" workdays regarding hours and pay.

    If an employer has a policy of granting time off for legal holidays, then it's a good idea for the employer to apply that policy equally to all employees of the same classification. Otherwise, the employer might face a discrimination lawsuit. Contact the EEOC or a lawyer about that.

    States and municipalities may enact FLSA equivalents that provide more generous provisions than the Federal version. Even so, the probability is low that a particular state or municipality requires private-sector employers to grant employee time off for all legal holidays.

    But, to be sure for the state or municipality in which you work, check with the relevant state labor department or municipal equivalent, such as the city council.

    Legal Holidays for Government Employees
    Legal holidays are established annually by Federal, state and local government offices for public-sector employees, according to laws or related regulations.

    For example, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) establishes the following legal paid holidays for Federal government employees each calendar year, as designated in Title 5 of the United States Code (USC) (Federal laws).

    •New Year's Day
    •Martin Luther King's Birthday
    •Washington’s Birthday (Presidents' Day)
    •Memorial Day
    •Independence Day ("Fourth of July")
    •Labor Day
    •Columbus Day
    •Veterans Day
    •Thanksgiving Day
    •Christmas Day
    If one of the Federal holidays listed above falls on a weekend, then the OPM will likely designate the preceding Friday or the following Monday as the official, legal paid holiday. See Federal Holidays at the Web site of the OPM, for the specific dates of Federal legal holidays in a particular calendar year.

    For information about legal holidays for state or municipal government employees, start by checking with the relevant state labor department or municipal equivalent, such as the city council.

    Haha. Trust me, lots and lots and lots of people work weekends and public holidays. You're very lucky if you get every weekend and public holiday off, because lots of people do not.

    I worked for several years with my normal weekend as Tuesday and Wednesday.
    I am sure that others who post here may have similar experiences.
    A gov holiday on a Monday was meaningless for me, even though I was a federal employee (US military). No additional pay, although I would usually get compensatory time off, but I still worked on most holidays.

    illigel [sic] indeed :D

    They're probably starting today or tomorrow. They didn't forget, they've been working in there for the past month.
