YOUR TURN: Retail stores open on Thanksgiving

YOUR TURN: Retail stores open on Thanksgiving

(WMC-TV) - This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from the Action News 5 Facebook page where there has been a lively debate about whether Wal-Mart and other stores should have opened on Thanksgiving.

Many people are unhappy about it. Others like Donna Cook Turnage point out that lots of people have to work on holidays. In her words:

"How would these same people feel if all the nurses, doctors, and EMT's decided not to show up to work on holidays? I personally hate that stores are starting to open on Thanksgiving, but if that is your job, then you have to do it. It's as simple as that. I have worked many holidays in my life as well, depending on the job I had. I didn't want to, but I did it because it was part of my job."

That's Donna Turnage's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email
