Re: Walmart Strike and Thanksgiving Opening!
Same thing is starting to happen on Christmas. More and more establishments staying open, meaning people have to work and miss the important family holidays.
First, they call for volunteers. After that it becomes mandatory.
The Holidays are fast becoming just like any other day of the year for many people--- and this will grow.
I think people would be perfectly happy in not shopping ON Thanksgiving day itself, but waiting till Friday.... all the stores have to do is not open. Instead they open with their mega sales to basically lure people in who otherwise would have stayed home digesting turkey.

part of the problem is the customers, They can shop online any time so they think the stores should also be there to serve them any time.
As long as things are break even for them they will open these days. Holidays in America are dead. it will not be long until white collar jobs open too. Naturally banks will remain closed because they will never change, Even in the digital age the banking day ends at 5pm Eastern, which is dumb because their is no rule at all that states the server cannot execute one final payment process script at 12am.

TD Banking online is available 24/7 (except when there is a system outage of some type) but your funds are available according to their clearing policies. Just because you can walk into the bank on a Sunday or log in to the banking site does not mean your transactions are handled any differently than the policies state they will be.
