There has been a groundswell of support for the boycott of those stores open on Thanksgiving. I have myself taken the pledge to not shop on Thanksgiving Day.
Retail has already reached the point where Christmas decorations are on display well before Halloween. Everyone deserves to spend Thanksgiving with their families, and the only ones who should be working on that day are those vital to public safety. Namely, our military, fire, and police give up their valuable family time during the holidays. Their sacrifice for the public good should not be cheapened by a greedy retailer forcing a minimum wage employee to work a twelve hour shift that day in order to keep their job.
Please join me. Spend Thanksgiving with your family and friends. Time with loved ones cannot be replaced. The stores will still be there on Friday.
