This is really bugging me and I will probably get some negative responses but oh well. I can't believe people are whining and complaining about having to work either Thanksgiving or the big sales that day and the next day. Even to the point of threatening to strike. Really? I understand that people are upset about not spending time with their families on the holiday. BUT you knew this was going to happen when you accepted the job working retail. Working black Friday is a requirement. There are so many people out there that wants a job but can't get one, just be happy that you have one. Suck it up and work the day no one wants to hear you complain about it. IF it is that big of a deal to you then you shouldn't have taken the job in the first place!
And before people attack me I am a Walmart Employee and I will be working Thanksgiving night in to Friday morning and comming back later Friday for another shift.
