    False. Whole food had never opened a Thanksgiving prior to this protest.

    Trust me I know there is such a thing as blowback and that is why workers are risking a lot when they try to have any kind of voice without union protection.

    They don't have a right to protest without repercussion.

    As an employeer I don't give a **** what the employee wants.

    I have to do what is best for the business and if the employee doesn't want to work they can go find another job.

    Why is that so hard for you to understand.

    Which doesn't change anything. Unless they have a contract stating that Whole Foods won't be open on Thanksgiving, then Whole Foods can be open that day and as an employer require Employees work that day.

    It's like some people don't even hide their hatred for poor people.
    "...it is all the more clear what we have to accomplish at present: I am referring to ruthless criticism of all that exists,"
