Each year retail workers have had to work earlier and earlier on Black Friday, sacrificing precious family time that they might not be able to enjoy any other day of the year. This year, Toys "R" Us, Walmart, ect., are opening on Thanksgiving day at 8pm. Retail workers across the country deserve to spend the holiday with their families. This is called Black Friday, not Black Thanksgiving and the people who take these jobs and work the hours and fufill their duties to these retailers should have the option, without getting fired, to spend the holidays with their families. There is a huge difference between coming into work at 8pm on the night of Thanksgiving and waking up at 5am to go into work the day of Black Friday. We request that Black Friday sales start Friday -- like it is supposed to -- not on Thanksgiving
