32. Then impose a limit on the number of days or hours that people can be required to work

But the fact is that blue laws are never "uniform" and never apply to all working people. There are always exceptions. Why should someone who has chosen one line of work be entitled to a government mandated uniform day off? Why should people who have that day off be denied the opportunity, by government fiat, to use that time off to run errands, do some things that might make their otherwise hectic work week a bit easier? Heck, if there is such a requirement, shouldn't it apply to Labor Day rather than Thanksgiving?

And of course its about religion. If it wasn't, then Labor Day would be that day off.
