Let Walmart employees have Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve Off

Thanksgiving and Christmas are some of America’s most cherished family holidays -- a day to spend with friends, family, and loved ones. But, in pursuit of the almighty dollar, some retailers open their stores on Thanksgiving and Christmas, forcing many of their employees to work. We know that companies can support their bottom line without sacrificing their employees’ well being. Many chain stores do well and are NOT open on Thanksgiving and Christmas. For Example Sam's Club owned and operated by Walmart is closed on Black Friday this year 2017. as a Loyal Walmart associate of almost 3 years I  believe retail workers at big box stores deserve a day to spend with family. Please urge Walmart, to put people over profits and refuse to open their doors on Thanksgiving the 24th of November and Christmas, December 24 and 25. and instead let employees have some time away from the frantic shopping season to spend with their children, partners and loved ones. I personally believe that employees who who are less stressed at work due to the holidays in turn have better customer service and then that should make happier customers and repeat customers. Sam Walton Said "The Customer Comes First' As someone who cares about family and community, I urge you to give your employees the day off on Thanksgiving and Christmas  Walmart made in fiscal year 2016  revenue of $482.1 billion Walmart made in fiscal year 2017 revenue of $485.9 billion, Thank you,Adam Farris https://goo.gl/VxpNWn www.adamfarris.net
