Give McDonald's Employees Thanksgiving Day Off!

This petition had 482 supporters

I was shocked and appalled when I drove through my local McDonald's this morning and saw that they would not only be open on Thanksgiving Day but will be open 24 hours?! I love McDonald's. I am a regular at my local restaurant in Fairfax, VA, where I get my coffee and fry fix and I'm greatly saddened by McDonald's decision to make their employees work while the rest of us get to enjoy a day of reflection and family. 

I want McDonald's to give their employees the same basic rights that every other American enjoys on this holiday. Let employees enjoy this day with their family and friends, or even by themselves, and don't make them pay for it out of their pockets. Give your employees the vacation time that we know you enjoy as CEO. Give them a paid Thanksgiving holiday before they are back to the grindstone for you early Black Friday morning. Don't they deserve it??
