being open on thanksgiving isn't necessary. for example: costco. none of these retailers will suffer if they are closed on thanksgiving.

Makes no difference if it's necessary or not. They are open that day because they make a profit that day. If they make a profit that day, then that means that people are going there that day.

That's a whole different discussion.

Your opinion of whether the establishment should or should not be open is irrelevant. They are open, so the employees must work. If they don't want to work, ask for time off, or work somewhere else.

Working on Thanksgiving is not a working condition, it is a work requirement. Again, do you not see that?

Indeed.

Protest them by not shopping there.

Welp kid, you can do that and you you can rant and rave on this forum. Those are your options, mostly.

You seem like the chain yourself to a tree type.

Next Turkey day, make a chain barrier and chain yourself to it preventing Walmart from using one of their main entrances.

Perhaps this statement will stop the atrocities of having to go to work on a Holiday.
