As used in this section, “wages” in any one week includes only that amount of remuneration to the nearest dollar that is in excess of 50 percent of the individual’s weekly wage.

    (b) Notwithstanding subsection (a) of this section, an individual shall not be deemed to be “partially unemployed” if the individual performed less than full-time work only because there was a holiday in that week for which the individual was entitled to holiday pay.
