Letter: Not a significant workplace injustice
Many employees at Walmart and elsewhere have been expressing their dissatisfaction with working holiday hours. Employees are speaking up for what they believe and demonstrating to the workplace managers that they can’t be pushed around.
Show a commitment to your cause: quit. I’m sure the 18,000 unemployed Hostess workers would appreciate the commitment to your cause and happily fill the vacated positions.
Most people appreciate and understand the importance of spending time with family during the holidays. The suggestion that employees are considering a walkout due to holiday work hours and not a significant workplace injustice is insulting to those currently unemployed. Go to work as scheduled, appreciate the ability to provide for your family, and recognize that big businesses are competing for consumers’ attention. This attention will equate to economic growth, which includes better wages and additional employment.
