The public has spoken with their wallets. They want businesses open on Thanksgiving Day. People are saying, "if you don't want to work on Thanksgiving Day, find another job." They are saying, "be thankful you have a job." I guess I am in the minority, but I refuse to shop on Thanksgiving Day. Yes, there are things that have to be open, hospitals, pharmacies, and I totally understand that -- my daughter is an RN. If your boss, no matter where you work, retail or not, said you had to work on Thanksgiving Day (and you are not in one of those places that have to be open such as a hospital), would you work; would you refuse to work; would you be looking for another job? My personal feeling is, that in the next 10 years, Thanksgiving (and even Christmas) will be just another work day or even school day. And I find that sad.
