I saw a commercial today for Walmart that advertised its Black Friday deals. I noticed that at the end of the commercial, they said that deals started at 6pm on Thursday, Thanksgiving day. I think it is so reprehensible that Black Friday is being pushed earlier and earlier each year. Walmart (and the other stores who are also doing this) has a complete lack of consideration for its employees–which is not shocking given Walmart’s history of employee mistreatment. These customer service employees have to put their lives on hold to go work on a holiday while the higher-ups in the company are likely stuffing themselves with pumpkin pie. In my mind, this is just one more reason to try and participate in Buy Nothing Day.
