Are you working on Thanksgiving?
Wal-Mart this week was the latest big retailer to get into the arms race to start Black Friday on Thanksgiving Day. The world’s biggest retailer announced Tuesday that it will offer its first set of doorbusters at 6 p.m., the same time as Best Buy and an hour later than Toys R Us’s 5 p.m. open. Target will open at 8 p.m. Macy's, J.C. Penney and Kohl's will offer Thursday hours for the first time. And Kmart will open at 6 a.m. Thanksgiving morning and remain open for 41 hours straight. These early doorbusters have led to a backlash from people saying the retail workers should be able to spend the holiday with their family.
