Stop Black Friday Creep!
Dear Ethical Consumer,
Thanksgiving a day to relax, watch football, share a great meal and spend time with friends and family. Or at least thats how it used to be, until retailers started competing with one another to get a jumpstart on Black Friday by opening on Thursday.
I call this Black Friday Creep.
Many retail workers already work long hours for paltry wages and no benefits. Now they have to give up Thanksgiving too? Come on! Imagine:
- Moms and dads cutting Thanksgiving dinner short so others can get a head start on their Christmas shopping.
- Young adults not making it home for Thanksgiving because theyve been told they have to work.
- Family elders seeing fewer and fewer members at the Thanksgiving table.
The Labor 411 Foundation wants to send a message that its not right that stores force their employees to work on Thanksgiving.
Sign this petition to let some of Americas largest retailers know that were tired of Black Friday Creep!
The mission of the Labor 411 Foundation is to ensure a thriving middle class by advocating for good jobs for everyone. The Foundation promotes its goals through research, education and advocacy and works to advance an Ethical Consumer Movement (ECM) that protects good American jobs and helps strengthen our communities.
