Today, as most of us are making room on our plates for second helpings or thumbing through ads for the best Black Friday deals, the men and women who will ring up our purchases are heading to work.
Why are they making this sacrifice? Often, it’s for survival. Some work on the holiday because they don’t dare risk losing their jobs by putting their families first. Others can’t afford not to take advantage of the extra hours and pay they’ll earn for working on the holiday.
Jobs With Justice is standing with retail employees and calling for fair wages and schedules throughout the year so that no one has to depend on working holiday shifts to make ends meet; add your voice to the call for justice by taking the pledge to stand with retail employees in the fight for better jobs and better lives.
