    Retail workers need a union. Then they could either put a limit on the hours worked or demand extra pay or both.

    Not really. Especially if their competitors also have unions.

    Really. You've seen the self check out lanes right? Wal-Mart has already done away with the greeters.

    It annoys me slightly that they value customers more than employees . . . even though the slogan is 'the customer is always right' it's just not always true and this is one of those situations where people - if they want to face blitz hours of shopping - should have to do so anyway. If it's inconvenient - then WHY do they do it?


    its ok.....after the holidays they all will be layed off because the stores will cut back to a skeleton crew .....they'll have plenty of time to spend with their families

    what a bunch of whiners. they should be happy they have a freakin job. I have lost count of the number of holidays I've missed over the last 25+ years because I had to work or was deployed overseas.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Does it really have to be explained? Businesses always cut back when they are forced to pay low skilled workers more money.

    Good for you, but you signed up for that and you knew it would happen.

    If nobody ever complained about anything, everyone in this country would still be working for 50 cents an hour, 100 hours a week.
