It's a shame to see the stores staying with the early open times on Thanksgiving. I feel bad for the employees. I mean, can you really enjoy your Thanksgiving, knowing you have to go to work soon? I was hoping they would at least push it back to 10ish. Anyone else miss the days when the stores opened at 2 am?
You can get off your soap box. The employees I talked to last year were perfectly happy with their time and a half pay they get for working that night. They also aren't forced to work all day. They can have Thanksgiving lunch, like my family has done the last 10 years. I haven't had a Thanksgiving "dinner" since I was in high school. It shouldn't matter what time you celebrate.
Where's your cry for the NFL players who play every year? The concession workers? The refs? The parking attendants?
I love when people complain about and even claim to boycott retail stores for having employees working on Thanksgiving but will support the NFL for being "open" on Thanksgiving.
