Some employees like to work on Black Friday
December 2 , 2013
People generally hate on Black Friday because of the fact that retail workers don't get to spend the day with their families. However, former retail employee Angela Harmon said on Salon that working on Black Friday doesn't "plain suck."
Many employers pay their workers more for Thanksgiving hours and many people want to earn that extra money. Moreover, the craziness makes work fun.
"I guess I always saw holiday work shifts as a necessary reality of the retail job I had chosen," Harmon wrote. She mentioned that activists should instead fight for appropriate wages for retail workers on Thanksgiving so they make more than what they do otherwise.
