    An extra 25¢/hour to work an evening shift, an extra 50¢/hour to work a night shift, time and half for overtime, double time for holidays, and triple to work overtime on a holiday (oh how they hated that one). From a job perspective holidays always represented less work, more money, and I was single at the time. They were the perfect days to work.

    How difficult would it be for Wal-Mart to pay double time to work on Thanksgiving? That would have employees jumping at, rather than dreading, working on the holiday.

    Full disclosure: my dad is a Wal-Mart greeter
