Do Target workers deserve a shortened Black Friday?



Worthless retail slobs.

I know it's not Black Friday.....but the stores are still technically calling it Black Friday.

Both Wal-Mart and Target moved the "Black Friday" sales to Thanksgiving evening this year, if I'm not mistaken.

Nobody is ever forced to work. Unless serious laws are being broken.

You guys aren't understanding this. The "Black Friday" sales aren't happening at the butt crack of dawn this year. I think that's their complaint. The Black Friday madness is taking places at like 8 or 9 PM on Thanksgiving night this year. I'm guessing the store has to be pretty much fully staffed through the day to prepare for the madness that night.

You don't see movie theater workers throwing fits or people saying they shouldn't work holidays. I am sure Target would prefer to not be open as would many stores but they can't do that if they want to compete.

At least target gave them an extra hour and are opening at 9 instead of 8. Nobody is eating dinner at 9 pm.

Most stores still have the black Friday doorbusters starting at 4 am or so. They have separate sales for Thanksgiving that aren't as much the limited quantity variety.

They took the job. Work or quit. I have worked several holidays thru the years and have been on call. If your company doesn't make money you don't either.

Right, because people who agree to working ALL Holidays by choosing that profession, and who are paid more as a result, are the same as retail employees who had previously never been required to work those same holidays. Spot on.
