If the workers are covered by the EA, I think they should be paid according Section 60D(3) of the EA.

"(3) (a) Notwithstanding subsections (1), (1A) and (1B), any employee may be required by his employer to work on any paid holiday to which he is entitled under the said subsections and in such even he shall, in addition to the holiday pay he is entitled to for that day:

(i) in the case of employee employed on a monthly, weekly, daily, hourly, or other similar rate of pay, be paid two days' wages at the ordinary rate of pay; or "
