I am saddened to know that some employees will spend part of their Thanksgiving Day at work ("Stop the madness," Nov. 22). Holidays are much anticipated as a day of rest with family and friends. I am old enough to remember when stores were even closed on Sunday in deference to the needs of workers. Even though the blue laws are gone, I think workers today need that consideration more than ever.
Some will say gee, aren't they lucky they have a job to go to, and I think that is a valid concern, but it's disheartening to me to see commerce take precedence over precious down time. So, my attempt at protest is not to shop at the stores listed in your article during the holiday season this year or for the years to come.
