I, too, am against it but, I would like to provide another viewpoint. There are some employees that can use the money that time and a half (+) provides when they work the holiday. I did a 12 hour shift one year and had a very nice check - most excellent for a full-time college student who generally worked part-time hours. I, in no way, looked down on anyone that shopped that Thursday as I figured that they needed the bargains the store was providing. It was a long day and I was getting cranky toward the end but not because I missed the holiday with my family - it was because my feet hurt from being stuck behind a register for so long. If I worked in a retail store and was going to college and was offered the opportunity to work you better believe I would take those hours!
