We have a word like "weekday" to represent all days from Monday and Friday.

Is there a word to represent "non-Sunday" days (i.e. Monday through to Saturday)?

Ordinary day, workaday. – lexeme Mar 27 '13 at 11:13

Actually, weekday can still be used to mean any day other than Sunday. This usage has become less prevalent since much of the developed world moved to a five day workweek, so might need a note of explanation, but it is consistent with the traditional meaning of the word.

to the same effect can be considered businessday as well as workdays but it excludes saturday in modern times. – Raghav Mar 27 '13 at 11:20
