So I guess Black Friday has now become Black Thursday and a Half... thanks to Walmart leading the charge. They will be opening at 8pm on Thanksgiving. Rather than at Midnight. And workers are striking because of it.
So, I have 2 thoughts on this particular subject...
1. If you (the worker striking) decided to work for a retail company that opens at 8pm on Thanksgiving, then that's on you. No one chose that job for you... you did. You have a job. Do it. There are a lot of people out there without a job. If you don't like the hours (or holidays you have to work) then perhaps you need to choose a different line of work. Just a thought.
2. If you (the consumer) are pissed about stores doing these types of things, then stop lining up at the door at 8pm on Thanksgiving. Companies are out to make a buck. If opening early isn't making them a buck, then they will stop. This is not rocket science.
My personal plan of action? Avoid Black Friday at all costs...
