Buyer Be FAIR—Retail Workers Should Enjoy Thanksgiving Too!


— by CAP Action War Room

Season’s greetings from all of us at CAP Action! While most of us are able to be at home celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with friends and family, not everyone is as fortunate. Retail stores across the country, instead of allowing their workers to take the day off to spend with their families, are increasingly opening on Thanksgiving Day. While some stores are staffing Thanksgiving on a volunteer basis, others are not – and with no mandatory paid vacation in the United States their employees could be threatened with firings if they choose to spend the day away from work. All this, despite the fact that openings on Thanksgiving did not help sales last year. So in your Black Friday prep, check out the graphic below to see which companies are treating their workers fairly this Thanksgiving, and which you might want to watch out for.
