Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the holiday shopping season is about to hit full force.
Retailers desperate for higher and higher holiday season revenue have pushed well into Thanksgiving evening to kick off Black “Friday”. They’re also requiring a good chunk of their employees to work the holiday evening — an overnight shift that requires those employees to either cut Thanksgiving dinner short or to sleep during the holiday to prepare.
How will you be spending Black Friday? Scrambling through malls to buy your family more stuff? Spending it relaxing? Working?
Here are some great articles to check out while you make out those shopping lists:
