I always work bank holidays – I get paid double-time!
Eu sempre trabalho em feriados bancários, eles me pagam o dobro!

How common is "feriado bancário" (in Portugal)?
I think that "feriado" on its own would be more common, right?

    I don´t know about 'feriado bancário' in Portugal. Here in Brazil, 'feriado' is more common.
