See this is what happens when its hard to find jobs and folks get taken advantage of by their employers. In many states its not so easy as just going to find a job. Tarjay was the first retail place i worked at that didnt offer time and half for holiday work. Even Kmart did that had gave u 80% off of certain merchandise andddd made u a big dinner... and yes they are close to being out of business but still...lol that kind of stuff made ppl volunteer to work. Which made them happier workers.... So ya dont be surprised when all the sh!t u want is gone.... because its not... its just in the back being held for a supervisor or summin.

damn ya'll rough out chea

I was fortunate enough to stop working in retail at 16 so I would probably lose my mind if I didn't at least have the option to take off....then again they aren't the only ones. My ex worked in a call center for a bank, and she had to work holidays, but at least she would get paid holiday pay and her regular pay

When I was a teen working retail I had to work on tgiving and all the eves. I NEVER got any time and a half or any type of incentive. I do thinks it's crazy that they are opening earlier and earlier though.

lmao i remember last year the news had a little segment where they were interviewing workers ( i wanna say @ best buy) about being unhappy about having to work on BF.

and the reporter goes " well if you weren't working the day-- where would you be?"
i think everyone expected ol' boy to be like- at home sleep; spending time w/ the family, eating more plates etc.

but instead he was like

*i'd be in line shopping w/ my friends*

lmao.

It's unfair. Especially with the crappy pay. Nobody wants to work at 9 pm on thanksgiving to look at yall asses.

Target is being stank as sh*t. I dont like that these muhfckas were playing Christmas commercials at the beginning of October, and that they're opening at 9pm on Thanksgiving. Target is a big ass coportation that's gonna make hella money on black friday regardless of when they open, and they're gonna make hella money during the holiday season regardless of when their Christmas commercials are playing. They look pressed, desperate, and greedy, and it's not a good look. 

However, when you get into retail, one of the first questions they ask you is whether or not you're willing to work holidays. I think it's fcked up that they're not getting paid extra for it (they have to leave their families and deal with crazy ass black friday shoppers for damn near min. wage?), but they knew what they were getting into.

Target is still on some fck sh*t, though.
