Stop Wal-mart from making employees work on Thanksgiving

It isn’t right to have Wal-Mart employees work all Thanksgiving day because they could lose their job if they do not go into work. All the days off requested months before were denied. People should not have to work on Thanksgiving because it takes precious time away from Family. Thanksgiving is a national holiday and should be spent with family, not at work.

      Shop regularly with Walmart but think it should be closed on Thanksgiving. Think opening is just plain greedy! I can shop next day so can others!

      Holidays are for family, not profit. Stop making your emloyees work on holidays when you do not! Please think of your employees and their families instead of your own greed! While you sit with your family and enjoy the holidays, many children of your employees are crying because mommy or daddy can't be home to spend time with them for the holidays!

      I used to work for Wal-Mart and I don't agree with making employees work on family holidays.
