To everyone saying "Well, be grateful that you ATLEAST have a job", you have obviously not worked in a retail environment. It's like getting hit in the face with a steel bat, multiple times. That sh*t is THE worst, especially on Black Friday. I can tell all of you work at your comfortable desks all day on a 9-5, with holidays off.
I work my comfortable desk job and make the same thing bestbuy workers make... but hey Im in school who's complaining.

all these dudes in here talkin bout the market and be grateful for your job are a bunch of hoes man, everything about our corporate environment is unamerican, wanna know what it would be like 2 live under a dictatorship?? just look at how our corporations treat their employees, and please n*gga they dont give holiday pay for black friday, i would pay to not be anywhere near those stores on black friday, its sick twisted commercially driven ignorance en mass, fuk all that, and fuk christmas too, the season of giving and trampling other people 2 death 2 save $10

employees need 2 stage a walk out in the most busiest part of black friday, maybe then these corporations will learn to treat the workers better, i would love to see the look on those evil drones faces when the cashier just walks out and these fu*ks dont know what 2 do, it would be pure joy

Wont be more money per say but it will look better to investors compared to last years number since it will be basically a 4-5 hour time-frame that's "not budgeted".
this is the whole reason our economy is fu*ked right now, companies ability to manipulate numbers, like generally accepted accounting principles instead of accounting regulations, our country worries more about policing marijuana and the average citizen who pays for the police force rather than policing true white collar crimes which affect a larger percentage of the population, we could probably blame every problem in america on unregulated corporations
kinda off topic but in the same sense its not, this is the basis for corruption

Hey yo best buy heads........what do they mean by ” you need a ticket to purchase this item in stores”?......seen this sh*t in the black friday email
exactly that. you need a ticket for the item. they pass them out to the ppl waiting in line about an hr or so before the stores open.

you're really going to tell me people that collect unemployment for like 2 years can't find a single job at all?

If you don't even have a GED or got like 5 felonies I guess it's understandable but that's their problem, shouldn't have fu*ked up.

EDIT: I do agree that there aren't enough for everyone right now, but there is always unemployment. I agree the economy sucks and LOTS of people are underemployed, but anyone who says they can't find a single job after like 3 months of looking isn't trying hard enough. Go flip burgers and work your way up.
1. not everyone gets unemployment, its easier to not get unemployment then it is to actually get unemployment

2. i'll use me for example, i have a degree, had a couple of retail jobs, moved from south louisiana to north louisiana to continue my education. been here for damn near 2 years, filled out jobs from bk.(ive worked in fast food) to wal mart(where i've worked twice) to office jobs and i havent got a job yet...

3. i can't file for unemployment because i had to quit my job to move, but even if i had got fired etc etc...i still wouldn't have been able to file, there's alot of loop holes for companies to not have to pay unemployment

so while people are complaining about working for black friday. i'd be more than happy to, i dont see the problem in being able to spend thanksgiving afternoon with ur fam, then going to work at 10 or 11 till 5 or 6 am, sleeping then going back to work later that day... when i worked two jobs i did that regularly imo having to work on
Thanksgiving day is alot more worse than having to go in at 10pm thanksgiving night...i can party on satruday

I agree that they shouldn't complain about having to work, it sucks but lots of people have to work different holidays. Sorry to hear you can't get a job, just from what I've seen here in CT i know lots of people who have been getting seasonal jobs at places or I constantly see people talking about getting new jobs or changing jobs on facebook so maybe it's just not as bad around here.

Have you tried substitute teaching? I don't know how it is in Louisiana but up here most schools are usually looking for some. Not sure if they hire more at the beginning of the year because I just started last month, but up here you need a bachelors to do it at most schools and you get $75 a day for going and babysitting some kids.

Try working in retail for 11 years straight bruh, working 8 of those on Black Friday, 6 of those 8 years being at Best Buy.

But I will say, I am grateful for my 9am-5:30pm desk job as a web developer now. ^_^

They should just be happy to have employment. I'd tell anybody that doesn't want to work, no problem, I'll find someone that does.
