Hey. If you go shopping tomorrow, then don’t bother acting like you feel the least bit bad for the people working. You’re the reason they’re working, so don’t pretend to sympathize with them. If you really felt bad about them not getting to spend the holiday with their family you wouldn’t spend money on that day. The stores will keep opening earlier and earlier as long as they think they can make money from doing it. That’s how it works.
If you think that it sucks that people have to work on Thanksgiving or Christmas, then don’t go into any stores and buy anything on those days. If we all as a culture really thought it was “terrible” that people have to work on those days and not be with family, then we would all stop supporting this stuff, and then the stores would be closed. That’s business.
It won’t get better if you don’t talk with your wallet.
