Black Thursday?
Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time of year when families spend time together, but more and more retail companies are asking their employees to work on “Turkey Day.” The lure of pre-black Friday profits have led companies like JCPenney and Macy’s to open on Thanksgiving. Bishop Dwayne Royster, director of Philadelphians Organizing to Witness, Empower and Rebuild (POWER), is speaking out against this new trend. He is on State of Belief this week to discuss social and economic justice, and how employees and employers are balancing family time and work hours this Thanksgiving.
