Workers Deserve Thanksgiving Day Off!

Workers_ThanksgivingDayWorkers Deserve Thanksgiving Day Off

Hello Everyone,
I wanted to take a minute to share this Credo Action petition with you.  Next week, while many of us will be sitting down with our families and friends to a lovely Thanksgiving Day dinner, workers at giant retailers like Target, Kmart, and Best Buy, will be hard at work.  Why will they be working?  Because retailers want to get a jump on “Black Friday” shopping!  To those retailers, and others like them, company profits are far more important than their employees and their families.  This is not right!  Thanksgiving Day shopping may not even be profitable for these major retailers after factoring in worker holiday pay anyway!

We Need to Rethink the Meaning of the Holiday Season

In my opinion, we have a very serious problem in America.  We really need to get back to what the holidays are truly supposed to be about – family, charity, community, love…  Not holiday shopping deals.  If so many Americans weren’t so keen on getting in line for hours in the hopes of getting a deal on flat screen televisions and tablet PCs, then maybe American workers wouldn’t need their fellow Americans to sign petitions asking their employers for the day off to be with their families.  Just sayin’.

Do you agree with giving retail workers Thanksgiving Day off to spend with their families?  If so, then please take a minute to add your name to the petition below.  Thanks!  ;)

Reject Keystone XL Pipeline: An Interview With Journalist & Author Naomi Klein

keystone xlDear President Obama, Reject the Keystone XL Pipeline

I care deeply about the environment.  About the people and the plant and animal life that are ultimately affected when bad things happen.  We are living in a world that is more toxic than at any other time in our history, and it’s up to us to make a difference.  To lend our voices to the millions, if not billions, that are telling our global leaders that we are tired of a world that is sick and dying, and that we’re not going to put up with it any more!

I wanted to share this Democracy Now! interview with journalist and best-selling author, Naomi Klein.  (I love her work, she’s brilliant.  I look forward to reading her latest book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.)

If you care about what’s happening in the world too, then take a few minutes to watch the interview.  Climate change, whether you believe it to be real or not, is impacting not only our temperatures, but every aspect of life on this planet.  Everything from food production to war can list climate change as a factor right now and in the coming years.

We really need to make some changes – now more than ever.  So please take a moment to watch.  ;)

Want to take action on this issue?  Please take a moment to sign the petition below urging President Obama to reject Keystone XL.
