We need wage slaves to come work holidays because if it wasn't for them I would not have the opportunity to buy an Emerson 50 inch LCD that will break within a year for 200 dollars off regular price. Don't like it well then quit your job and get a better education so you can make salary but don't take out any loans you can't afford to pay off or go somewhere you require a grant to attend because I don't want my taxes going up because I don't understand what a social contract is

I've read stories about employees at these retailers being trampled to death by rabid customers looking for black friday deals on poo like fisher price kitchen playsets that their kid will play with for 3 fuging minutes on christmas before abandoning. I guess before you sign your 18 year old self up for working at Walmart you better accept that going to work on a holiday and possibly leaving with a white sheet over your lifeless body is just a part of business

Basically if you endorse this you're probably possessed by hitler

Every single one of those people should watch that clip and reflect on what they place value in.

There is no way Id treat my fellow man like that over a few lousy bucks.

If you don't want to work when a company requires you to, find another job. If that's the best job you can get...then go back to school and suck it up until you can move on.

I refuse to work Sundays, and most major holidays. Does that make me feel better? Nope.

Now, Big Picture it disgusts me at how these companies are continuing the trend of raping their employees in as many ways as possible, but it's the consumer's fault...not the company. Soon Thanksgiving will be a shopping holiday based on greed instead of being thankful and giving thanks to others.

My wife thinks I'm weird because I'm sort of a Doomsday Prepper. Not off the wall like the people on the show, but I have tons of food, water and ammunition for when/if there is a collapse of social order. I showed her some Black Friday videos yesterday and said look how quickly people devolve into degenerate animals. And that's to save $100 on a shitty TV or $50 off a prepaid phone. How do you think they'll act when they have no food and water readily available? They will trample and rip to pieces anyone who stand in their way. This is fact, made clearer to me every year by the things I see on Black Friday.

My wife is a med tech, she had to work yesterday, so no I don't feel a lot of sympathy. But I don't understand anyone that would want to shop on black friday or thanksgiving night. I can't imagine a worse torture.

I can't imagine anyone wanting to Christmas shop in an actual store. Get the same deals on line and miss the hassle.

You could not pay me to go shopping on Black Friday.

So basically you should just blame everyone else for your shitty life and shitty education/career choices. Got it.

I'm sorry your friend's been working at walmart for almost 10 years, that's very unfortunate. Because Walmart hires everyone between 7-8 dollars an hour, regardless of past work experience. You get 40 cent raises every year, that's it. Whether you blow house rodents for 8 hours a day or actually do work.

He'd have to have been there at least 8 years to be earning 12 dollars an hour.

Take it from someone who worked for them for 6 years during high school/undergrad.

I'll tell you guys some more stories if you'd like to hear them. Walmart is the devil.

Unskilled labor garners unskilled labor wages. It is as simple as that.

Want a better paying job....actually give a damn about school and education.

I actually went to Concord Mills yesterday because we bought a shirt for my son last week and the store forgot to remove the security tag. I was pretty surprised to see that it wasn't especially crowded. While we were out, we went to Wal-Mart too for some basic stuff, and it was also uncrowded. Maybe people are finally getting smart about this black friday stuff?
