If you have to travel for Thanksgiving, then you probably appreciate the barista that came to work that morning and made it possible for you to get your caffeine fix. 

 Can you imagine visiting the family you only see once or twice a year and not grabbing your favorite cup of joe? I shudder at the thought. 

But you probably felt a little pang of sadness for the worker, too. Thanksgiving is a time for family & friends... and food... and eventually, a food coma. Having to work definitely cramps that style. 

Although it seems the Christmas decorations come out earlier every single year, there are some stores pushing back & standing up for the Thanksgiving holiday and most importantly, prioritizing that their employees get some much-needed R&R with their loved ones.
