I have not heard much honking the last couple of days about Wal Mart or Target workers not showing up for work this evening. It seems a bit silly to open the stores at Midnight (or whatever) but still........In today's political climate perhaps workers feel somehow empowered. Obama, a vocal (but perhaps not real) champion of labor, has been reelected and organized labor is banging their drums and blowing their horns a good bit the last few days.
If I was an Evil Empire or Target employee (and thank goodness I'm not), I would show up to work. I would continue to look for better employment sure but would keep what I have. I have learned this lesson the hard way a time or two myself.
