i for one am really pissed that corporate america feels they have the right to steal one of the biggest most sacred holidays away from millions of workers...the workers don't really have much say, in this ecomony. but we as consumers do....i ask all of you to not shop on thanksgiving day, this is the only way that we can send a message that we still have a say in what happens in this country!!!

f' shopping...the whole point of this thread is people should be able to be home with their families on thankgiving. in effect we have allowed corporate greed to steal a holiday from us. if they ask for volunteers and enough people are willing thats fine, but mandatory is not, imo!!!

Surprised u don't get my "point".

If you were running a company it'll be good cause you'll make sure the workers get time off to spend with their family.

It irritates me too bud.

I think we only have ourselves to blame. People camping out for Black Friday!?!? Seriously, what is wrong with people?!?!? That's what led to these ridiculous promotions, companies are giving people what they ask for (beauty of capitalism) but sadly, core American values are dying.

You wouldn't have seen anyone camping out, regardless of the sales in the 50's or 60's

sorry, i get emotional about this stuff and misinterpreted where you were coming from.

i apologize.

the guys running companies are doing their jobs...not hiring and keeping unemployment high so they can make greater demands for less pay and benefits, thus keeping profits at record highs..

what i am pissed about is that we the american workers are not doing more to stop this. we need to put petty differences aside and make a stand before it is too late!!!

How can we do that a strike?
We need money.

the best protest we can do is not to spend money this weekend...this will force them to cut prices even more!!!

the guy on the business channel said they weren't cutting prices as much this year, but if sales this weekend were low they would cut deeper!!! if we spend lots of money this weekend then they win, and future black fridays cuts will be even less...so spend they win...don't spend we win!!!
