Thank you to all who have shared this and signed so far! Let's keep pushing this! We reached 300 signatures!
Some people have been cynical on the petition, thinking it won't accomplish anything, that its a waste of time and A&P wont care at all, maybe so... But I think it's a waste for us not to do anything at all. To just stand by while the company forces us to work on a holiday like Christmas. This effort is about standing up for ourselves, about fighting for respect. It's also bringing this to the public, letting people know what A&P's plans are...The customers I've spoken too were outraged.
The same thing is going on at Target opening on Thanksgiving, that petition has over 200,000 signatures supporting the workers there.
We have families too and deserve to spend the day with them! If you're on board with the idea that we all deserve respect, and have right to stand up for ourselves, sign the petition then share it with your coworkers, friends, families and customers!
