One Journalist's Message to Outraged Retail Workers Ahead of Early Black Friday Hours: "Count Your Blessings, You've Got a Job"
As Wal-Mart and Target employees plan mass protests ahead of Black Friday hours now beginning at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, one journalist is weighing in, saying that while he has sympathy for the workers, there are a couple of other things to keep in mind.

He continued, saying that to some extent workers should 'count their blessings.'
"You've got a job. Show up."
