Retail employees are pulling the short straw during Black Friday 2012. The early opening of Black Friday at 8pm on Thanksgiving Day means a 24 hour work day and a short cut Turkey dinner for some retail employees.
We consumers just care about the best deals on Black Friday. The other side of the Black Friday sales extravaganza is the strain the event puts on retail employees. Black Friday has always been crazy. It was even that crazy that it cost human lives. Black Friday got definitely safer, but it is still an intense event as doorbuster deals are in short supply and crowds can be huge. This year the Black Friday sales at major retailers already start at 8pm on Thanksgiving Day. According to CNN this can mean 24 hour sifts for retail employees and short-cut Turkey dinners.
Maybe the solution to this is the complete shift of Black Friday to online stores. It already happens anyway. A bigger and bigger chunk of the Black Friday sales is coming from online Black Friday events every year. The old school Black Friday morning in-store Black Friday sales could come back when online sales out perform in-store Black Friday sales.
The petitions on Change.org will change the Black Friday creep. It is money. When consumers spend more online, than retail stores will cut back on the hours for Black Friday. If you want to support the petitions to change Black Friday hours, you just need to only shop Black Friday online this year.
