    I think that the very nature of Black Friday is going to change. 'Bout time too. We don't need it.

    and that's cool. i just wanted to make sure i understood what you were saying.

    don't you think that a law requiring folks to show up to work would be unconstitutional? these people didn't sign a contract or anything.

    They have every right to strike. Walmart, depending on their contract with workers, may have every right to replace them. When you apply to work for a 24/7/360 employer, don't be surprised that you may be scheduled on holidays.

    Yes, it is going to change. It's getting earlier and earlier. What y'all don't understand is that the consumers are driving this decision. If the people weren't there to shop, the stores wouldn't be open. You go to your neighborhood Target at 5pm tomorrow night, and tell me what you see. It's scary. The last time I was at Target when they first opened, the line was 3 across, probably a quarter of a mile long. Honestly, I think people would be upset if the stores closed.

    Where did I say that? Are you serious? Legality has nothing to do with it! When you work retail, it is a known fact that you will work holidays. The employee can't sue the employer, the employer can't sue the employee. I'm not going to explain this to you anymore. I don't know if English is not your first language, or maybe you lied to sign up, and you really are under 13, if you are being intentionally obtuse, or if you just don't know any better.

    Either way, I think I'm finished with you. I just don't have the patience today.

    For the third year...




    The next thing they should hear over the loudspeaker is "Attention striking WalMart employees....you have all been replaced."

    Exactly. That's the first thing I thought -- "again??"
