Wal Mart said that workers will get nice Thanksgiving dinner at work, as well as extra pay. scheduled to work will also get a 25% discount off one purchase, regardless of how many items they buy at the time.
Wal Mart decision to offer these incentives comes after employees staged protests last year on Black Friday, demanding higher wages, better benefits and hours and the right to speak up without fear of retaliation.
The movement has since caught steam, and protests have continued to pop up throughout the country even in other low paid jobs. Just last week, five Wal Mart workers were arrested outside of a Los Angeles store while protesting.
Greed will be the downfall of this once great country. Corporations have flexed their muscle in this country for far too long now. They have become heartless, greedy, shameless and disgusting just like the article states. They have become shameless in their exploitation of this economy and the people out there who are desperate to make a living to feed their families. Wages are low, hours are long, benefits are shoddy (if they exist at all) and now they taking holidays away. What will they take away from employees next? Christmas Day?
So you miss Thanksgiving dinner big deal. If that is the only day you can make your family feel special and loved I feel sorry for them. I bet you would give up Thanksgiving dinner and family time for a football game or a baseball game, you have 24 hours in a day and I am sure you can fit in time to spend with family and friend I not saying family time isn important, because it is. I have four children and black Friday makes it possible for my husband and I to give them a better Christmas. We spend our time together then with family having Christmas dinner then watching those faces light up when they can open up more then one gift because prices are so much cheaper on black Friday. We are not rich and every penny we can save helps a lot. So thank God for black Friday and thank God for family!!!!
Thank you!! That was very well said! Finally someone with some common sense and not afraid to speak up to the whiny cry babies out there who just want to have something to boycott. People in this country aren happy unless they are bitching about something. No one is forcing these people to work at these places. I work Every Thanksgiving, new years and Christmas eve to because it pays well to work holidays in this country. Do what you have to do to take care of your family. Besides We do NOT celebrate thanksgiving the way its intended to be celebrated anyway. People complain about having to work to help other families who other wise couldn afford Christmas(they don see it that way) by holding black Friday because they rather get fatter by stuffing their faces and watching football???
