Should I Pay Overtime For Weekend Work Or Get Them To Take Off During The Week?

Saw this on Facebook, wanted to know what our community thought.

If you have an industrial customer that needs work done when the plant is down and the only days that they are down is Saturday and Sunday, do you schedule guys off a day or two during the week and pay straight time for the weekend work or do you charge the customer overtime for the Saturday and Sunday work?
