new union for walmart the workers are striking to not work on thanksgiving two hours earlier. Walmart claims consumers want it open black friday. No I am a consumer close the damn doors and open it on friday 6 am so families can rest and damn its enough. work people to death these employers are greedy. They do not give these walmart kmart target employees one dang holiday its the break down of family. Please help support these people and others like them to let them eat bird with the family and rest. Maybe they can play a board game or cards or a video game and just enjoy one day. If they strike I will support them

I agree. I would support too. come on what is one day I do not need more junk that bad. I like the idea that black friday is well on friday and standing on line and waiting is the fun in it. Its a good day to see people you have not seen all year you work. Its greed pure greed

be glad you have a frigging job! you're boss is in charge, not you. if your boss needs you a certain time, by God you better show up or you will be replaced. business is business. try asking off for thanksgiving if you are a waitress. have thanksgiving another day. if you have a job, at least you have something to be thankful for!

Black Friday is the biggest sales day of the year, so retailers must take advantage. I can see both sides of the coin, but if employees don't like it, find a non-retail job. I hope they fire workers that strike on the spot.

How about all the medical workers who don't get the holidays off? And furthermore, how about all the military men and women who are overseas and away from their families???? Get over having to lose a couple hours with your family and be thankful that you get to spend time with them at all!

Medical workers, military people, police, etc. are essential workers. Is it really essential for you to be able to go to Wally World and buy more Chinese made junk onThanksgiving?

I say if you don't like the hours find another job. I personally plan to boycott Thursday shopping, but then again Wal-Mart is taking my money, not cutting me a paycheck.

As, for unions, they are the primary reason America's jobs are now in China. Workers getting over paid for simple assembly line jobs, with unions rendering business owners unable to lower wages in response to the market.

I have to comment that your concept of 'fun,' and mine are quite different!

What, you don't get a thrill standing in a line being crushed between hundreds of people... Sometimes I go to amusement parks just to stand line for hours on end... I never ride the boring rides, when I get to the front I go back and start over again...

So, you really believe that if those union guys would have worked for $15 per hour instead of $25 per hour those companies wouldn't have moved those jobs oveseas where they only have to pay about $1 PER DAY?

My only reply is that your concept of 'fun,' is exclusive of my concept of 'fun!' But, whatever rocks your world..........

When I was little places were closed on Sunday or if they were open they would close at 12:00. Times has changed and thansgiving is only just another day no big deal they are getting double the wages. When you apply for a job you know when they work. Although I will not be out shopping on thanksgiving and most people probably won't. They should have easy money more pay and less work I say to them improvise eat dinner early or late depending on when you work and take advantage of a easy laid back day of work!

Yes I agree that medical, military, police, and etc are essential workers. I won't be going to Wally World or spending time with my family Thursday or Friday because I am a medical worker and will be working these days and nights, but these workers will lose just a few hours with their families they wont be losing the entire day. I know this for a fact because I worked at Walmart for over 7 years before leaving there and going into the medical field. This is def not something worthy of striking over. And also if they are that upset about it they can always go find a job that gives them holidays off.

the point is not if anyone needs to go to wal-maRT TO BUY CHRISTMAS junk the fact is their employer chooses to open on thanksgiving so do like everybody else who have to work and get over it!

what is joy in being taxed to death and robbing peter to pay paul. Life isn't just about happiness anymore. Everything is expensive thanksgiving is gonna cost a lot. Of money and not to metion kids are not satisfied with cheap gifts anymore. Money money money that is what the world revolves around anymore. Its just plain stressfull. When you grow up and pay the bills the joy becomes less and less important. I know it isn't the way its supposed to be but the holidays is so stressfull for average people just getting by!
