If you're working full-time hours, the presumption is that you'll be considered a full-time employee. If you are considered a full-time employee, holiday pay is normally included in that.
Missouri employers can terminate employees for any reason except discriminatory reasons. If you are a minority, older than 40 years old, female and terminated for that (or male and terminated for that), or homosexual, you might be able to bring a discrimination suit against the employer.
If you have accrued pay at the workplace and haven't gotten paid for those hours, then the employer is violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). These cases are VERY fact intensive and without more detail, it is hard to determine if you have proper claims. You should contact an employment attorney to help you determine that.
Hope this helps,
