    work day and working day

    It is not a weekend or public holiday today. It is a ..... day.
    What should the word be - work or working?
    What is the difference between the two?

    If the above was correct, there would be no difference.

    Re: work day and working day

    I never heard of a working day before. Where is it called a working day?

    Re: work day and working day

    For me, a work day is a day of the week on which I work. My working day is that part of the day in which I work. This may not be common.
