Workers Nneed a Better Deal on Thanksgiving Weekend


Workers Nneed a Better Deal on Thanksgiving Weekend

Jenny Wittner

We need to improve the condition of workers this Thanksgiving weekend.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday may mean great deals for shoppers but they can be a terrible deal for the millions of retail and warehouse workers who are forced to work long, unpredictable hours. Recently, many stores have even stayed open on Thanksgiving, preventing workers from spending the holiday with their families and friends.


Stop shopping over the Thanksgiving weekend - period. If no one comes the greedy merchants will have to pay their employees for just standing around.

This Black Friday insanity has gotten way out of hand and people fall for it year after year. Simply "googling" stores which are a bit better to their employees and still go shopping is not the answer.
