Don't Shop on Thanksgiving!
When I was in college I worked at a grocery store and they were open until 4. It wasn't bead because my family would have dinner around 5 so I could be there. BUT now other stores are opening around 6. What about a family where one kid has to work in a grocery store until 4 or 5 and another family member has to be at work at 6 at a retail store. How are they supposed to enjoy the day as a family?
I pledge not to shop because it is crazy! I never really shopped on Black Friday because I couldn't stand the crowds, so what will make me do it on Thursday after a great turkey dinner? I really hope that the stores are making it voluntary and with a great pay incentive so only people that really want to work have to, but I highly doubt that is that case! Who is with me? Let's make a statement!
