Black Friday 2012 Goes Online (Wal – Mart workers strike)

I read an article the other day about Wal – Mart employees planning a walkout on Black Friday due to the invasion of family time.  Now I can totally agree with the employees here.  At what point does family become more important than profit?  What’s the point of having holidays if you’re not able to spend them with your family?  Holidays should be a time to take a break from the everyday chaos, not a time to create more.

But why would Wal-Mart do this?  How could they be so insensitive?  Because the people have demanded it.  The earlier that people were willing to get out and stand in the cold waiting for the doors to open, the earlier the stores begin to open.  So, now it’s basic supply and demand.  So, I totally agree with Wal-mart too.

Alas, someone in operations saw the light, “Why not put Black Friday deals online?” 

“Genius!” another responded.  We’ll allow people to order online and have their products shipped directly to them! Why didn’t someone think of this before?”

“I don’t know, maybe we thought that people wouldn’t go for it.  I think people actually like standing in line, in the cold……..(fictional story).

Seriously though, are most people that suggestible that they’d continue this behavior even with the option of not having to go through it?  I certainly hope not

  1. Just MHO: this Black Friday nonsense has gotten ridiculously out of hand. I understand the American economy is a mess but I strongly doubt a few hours of shopping on Thanksgiving will improve it all that much. Personally, I was offended when stores started opening at 4 AM. Heck! Aren’t people tired, employees and shoppers alike? (At least the latter group has a choice–how many employees do?)

    Anyway, that’s my two cents. And if people want to line up in the cold earlier, no one is stopping them. The store though, can remain closed and let its employees have a little family time.

  2. BTW, I have no problem with online Black Friday shopping–unless it’s my kid missing Thanksgiving dinner to get a deal, lol.
