    That won't happen if they eat stuff from Whole Foods.

    Fine by me. Enjoy the new unions and higher prices that could have been prevented by common sense policies.

    Yep, it costs much less to completely retrain new employees than to merely lose business for one day

    Neither one of those things will be a problem if government keeps its nose out of labor issues altogether, like it should.

    Correct, they have the right to quit. They also have the right to not show up whenever they feel like.

    They are also not required to quit if they choose not to show up.

    If a union doesn't like being forced to work on Thanksgiving, fire everybody in the union. There are plenty of scabs out there who need jobs.

    I don't think that Whole Foods can raise their prices any higher and still have any customers

    In order to qualify as "the man", WF would have to get taxpayer subsidies.

    And then those new scabs will refuse to work the next Thanksgiving, and so on. . .

    They do, in the form of limited liability.
