I will not shop on Thanksgiving, as I want to be with my family. More than that, I want workers to be home with their families. I was chatting with a Walmart employee recently. She has to work from 1-8 on Thanksgiving which means she misses both the mid-day and evening meal. When my mother-in-law worked in retail, she was not allowed to take a vacation day on Black Friday. I'm not sure when I will be shopping next week, but I suspect I will be doing some on-line shopping at the very least. I'd like to head out on Saturday to support locally, but that may not be able to happen.
