3. Are employees entitled to extra pay for weekend, holiday, or night work?
The Minimum Fair Wage Law does not require extra pay for weekend, holiday, or night work; however, the Massachusetts Blue Laws, M.G.L. c. 136, §§6, 13, & 16, require some retailers to pay premium pay for Sundays and certain holidays. For more information about these laws, go to Massachusetts' Blue Laws.

to be sure you need to check your state labor board site
paying time and a half is for overtime
if one does not work a national holiday and the company includes that day in the pay it would be regular pay
if the employee works on that day it is probably double time, but each state does not have the same payment rules
