Close for Thanksgiving Day

My sister works for Old Navy. For the past few years they have opened on Thanksgiving Day, and this year they are extending their work hours to 10pm. The employees are required to work a shift on Thanksgiving and also required to work a shift on Black Friday, which begins at midnight. Many of these employees, including my sister, are forced to work on this National holiday and then come back a few hours later for Black Friday leaving very little time to spend with their families. The driving force behind any retail business opening on a day such as Thanksgiving is nothing other than pure Greed. It is completely unfair to force someone to spend time away from their family's in order to gain a sale.

      It sickens me that so many corporations care more about making a buck than they do about the welfare of their associates. I work in retail, and my employer issued a statement from the CEO stating that stores would open at 7 AM on Black Friday to allow associates to enjoy Thanksgiving with their loved ones. I'm sad that so many retailers have chosen to skip straight over this beloved holiday and catapult directly into Christmas. I'm even more sad that corporate greed has taken one of the two rare non-worked holidays away from many retail associates.

      This is disgusting greedy behavior. I used to buy all my main pieces at Old Navy, and encouraged friends and family to do the same. I can't support a company like this. Goodbye Old Navy and Gap. My money will go to places that value their employees even if I have to spend a little more.

      Greed is taking over the world. No compassion for people any more

      Anyone who makes someone work on Thanksgiving is a greedy dick.
