Do Target workers deserve a shortened Black Friday?



Worthless retail slobs.

I despise Wally World, I hate even going in there, nothing but a bunch of chinese shit..... Sometimes I go in and showroom their knives in sporting goods (gerber makes pretty good knives) then I go buy it online.

You see something online at walmart for say 99 bucks , you go to the walmart they tell you its 109.00 , you have to go back home and buy it online and go back to the same damn store to pick it up...

Dumb shit..

If family is so important, maybe they should make it a point to see them more than twice a year?

For as long as I can't remember. They are big nights for movie theaters. Lots of families hit a movie in the evenings together on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Bowling is also popular.

I have maximum job flexability worked at a job where working those holidays was just part of it...you knew it going in and it wasn't at all a big deal. Was actually somewhat enjoyable because everyone at these places was close. Like the holidays with a second family.

I also have a laid back family that celebrates the holidays whenever it is easiest to get together. A lot of times that was the day after Christmas. Oh well...good times still had by all.

I can't think of very many people that wouldn't throw a shit fit if the Thanksgiving holiday they have always been allowed to have was forcably taken away from them.

If you really don't want to work that bad just call in sick.

As long as you don't have a history I don't think the company can do much

They signed up for the job, there'll be times it will suck to work.

That being said, it's absolutely thickening how ridiculous Black Friday has become in this culture. I get trying to save money but I'd hope there would be a better way.

I'm pretty sure they are opening at 9 pm not 9 am so let's not act like it's the whole holiday...

But anyways, I get workers being upset but the people here that are throwing fits are not the workers so the point remains that unless they can say they have always advocated for movie theater workers in the same situation they should just shut up.

Yep, be thankful for what you have and then go out and buy a bunch of shit. I found some good deals online last year, but there's no way in hell I'd go anywhere a retail store.

Yes, the Black Friday nonsense is out of control. No, they shouldn't be forced to work. And what goes on in movie theaters has absolutely nothing to do with this.

Movie theater workers signed up for the job, knowing that was the expectation. And let's be real here, the amount of employees to run a movie theatre isn't remotely close to the amount you'll need to run a retail store on Thanksgiving.

Target workers did not sign up for this. And saying it's 9pm... I know I would be pissed if I know I had to drink less on Thanksgiving night because my boss FORCED me to go to work that day. And it was because my company decided to make up a policy this year that stripped me of a holiday. I am lucky and thankful to work for a company that knows I work hard all year long, but that believes in giving me time on the holidays for my family.

They didn't sign up for this.

They took the job with the expectation that Thanksgiving was off. Now the company is trying to take away a holiday.

It's easy for us to talk about this when you're on the outside. I know every one of my co-workers would throw an absolute shit fit if they were forced to work on Thanksgiving.
