Retail employees rebel against early Black Fridays

Retailers with plans to open their doors Thanksgiving night instead of waiting until Black Friday officially begins at midnight or the next morning are facing increasing criticism from employees upset at not being able to spend the holiday with their families.

For the second year in a row, employees of retailers including Target, Walmart and Toys R Us have started or signed petitions on Change.org calling for Thanksgiving day off.

Toys R Us led the pack last year by opening at 9 p.m. Thanksgiving night. This year they'll open at 8 p.m., along with Walmart, Sears and Kmart, though most Walmart stores are open 24/7 and Kmart stores will be open earlier in the day before closing briefly at 4 p.m. Target will open at 9 p.m.
