Your Opinion on the Target, WalMart, (Other Bigbox Retailer Here) Thanksgiving Protests
Posted 21 November 2012 - 03:58 AM
whenever you're on the bottom of the totem pole (i.e. sales associate at Target) you're going to get fuged in the ass when it comes to scheduling.
"Congratulations, you're hired! Oh, by the way, say goodbye to all of your holidays at home, we're your family now"

Part of me is extremely peeved that I received the email asking for my support for the petition because my first reaction was, "Where was change.org and online petitions when I was working slave jobs from 18-25 or so and was asked to work holidays away from my family?"
What makes these employees anymore deserving to have these holidays off then ones who didn't have the ability to make petitions just 5 years ago?
congratulations, you have bought into corporate propaganda. yes, be mad at those willing to actually take a stand while you were "working slave jobs from 18-25 or so and were asked to work holidays away from your family" rather than the people who made you do it in the first place.
"where was the government when i was a child laborer from 8 or so? what makes these kids anymore deserving of a childhood devoid of 60 hour work weeks in textile mills than those who didn't have a national child labor committee just 5 years ago?" said great grandpa proudiddy

If you're in retail you should know you're going to get screwed around holidays. My buddy has been at Guitar Center since day one in Matthews and even though he doesn't like working every holiday he always says "that's retail".
I do feel a little sorry for them, but if you're working retail you need that job much more than they need you. Tis life...

Love or hate Wal-MArt they have provided a segment of jobs that didn't exist before.
