Openings on Thanksgiving

A new controversy has started to brew this thanksgiving. It is that of store opening. There are two groups on the opposite side of this debate. One says that is it not right to open stores and the other says that it is okay to open it. The group opposing it says that since the workers in the stores open don’t get the chance to celebrate thanksgiving with their families, it is unfair to them. But the group supporting the opening of the stores says that it is okay to say thanksgiving and then go out shopping. If you ask the people working in these opened stores they will agree with the opening of the stores as the economy has really made it hard for people to get jobs and in this way at least they will be earning some money for their loved ones.

I believe that in this day and age when the internet is on 24/7 all year long, the opening of stores is just a matter of survival for these stores. And any employee who does not want to work can still take that day off but will lose the chance to make money. With internet always on and some stores opening, it is now okay to open the stores and it should really be the choice of people whether they want to work or shop or just stay home. But always remember that the economic situation of different people will dictate their willingness to act or not to act in a particular way.
