work is work.

you have to work certain times when you dont want to.

ive worked black friday in the past... did i like it? nope. but i did it -- it was my job.

if i didnt want to- I'd find a job where i wouldn't have to.

She needs to stfu and put on her sh*tty red shirt and faded khakis and take her ass to work. I know a few people who would be happy to take that paycheck. Her situation sucks but seriously, its retail and retail sucks. 

I worked at a movie theatre for almost 4 years and we were open on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years (Those are actually the busiest days of the year for us). And I missed so many family dinners and gatherings while at that job, but guess what I did. I found another job that didn't have me working everyday of the year. She should try it.

I believe at Walmart employees get some sort of premium pay for Black Friday.

I'm not trying to compare healthcare to retail. It's apples and oranges. I think it sucks they HAVE to work on Thanksgiving. I think they should rotate holidays. They should at least get time and a half.

I have to miss Thanksgiving with my family. Period. My family is in another state and I will be completely alone this Thanksgiving because its my holiday to work. It sucks especially because this is the first Thanksgiving without my mom but its part of my job. I have to do it.

I understand how they feel but its part of their job.. At least they actually get to see their families..
