Your Opinion on the Target, WalMart, (Other Bigbox Retailer Here) Thanksgiving Protests

141 posts in this topic

Worked every holiday since I was 15.

Don't give a poo. Find a new job or find a way to request it off. But realize, people will work and it will be because of you. People usually get paid more on holidays too.

People who don't want to work but want to go home and use their electricity, use their water, watch TV with people...having fireman or police on hand, teh trucker who brought in their Turkey is probabably still on the road.. All those things take people working on Thanksgiving.

So people should stop bitching and work around it and remember how you should be thankful for what you do have, including your job. People are so dramatic, I just bought all my thanksgiving poo on sale, with no crowds and am having my Thanksgiving on Sunday night with more football with leftovers for the Panther game on Monday. A day is just a day you can still have Thanksgiving.

I feel the same way for any holiday that isn't religious for people.

I'm sure some of the Target employees were protesting so they could stay home and watch the football games yesterday.

Oh, the facilities management crew and concession stand employees at the stadiums didn't want to go to work on Thanksgiving either? Tough, I want to watch my football!

If they don't want to work, I'll do it. Could use a few extra bucks to make ends meet this month.

If wasn't sick, I'd work as well. Single, no family here, between GF's. It ought to be employees who feel like Jase and I do work from whenever Thanksgiving evening to some ungodly hour of the morning.

With this economy, they ought to be thankfull they have a job. Back when I was in highschool, I worked at a grocery store. I had to work from 8AM-4PM every Thanksgiving. (The only time we were closed was Christmas day.) My Mom was actually happy that she didn't have to get up at 4AM to put the turkey in!

Hotel=hours other people don't work.

Uugh! The only job I had that I actually hated. I'd go so far as to say one of the reasons I worked so hard to get where I am now is to insure I never had to do that poo again.

I didn't notice any shortage of employees at any of the stores I went to last night in Wilson. For the first time ever, walmart had ALL registers open, including the pharmacy, layaway, garden center, sporting goods, etc. We didn't even attempt Target last night; we were done shopping before they even opened. Thank you, stores that opened at 9.

My daughter and I usually start around 10ish and shop until we can't shop any more. If not for us having to travel to Greensboro for a football game today, we'd have shopped more stores.

You should have seen the women in Belk's last year fighting over boots.

In short we value buying cheap Chinese crap we don't need over everyone spending time with their families and loved ones on the holidays.

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
