More and more big box stores plan to beat the Black Friday rush by opening on Thanksgiving night. But store employees aren't happy about having to leave their families on a national holiday to go help the masses get deals on flat-screen TVs. One Target staffer has even started a petition asking the chain to push back its opening time from 11pm on Thanksgiving to 5am the next day. Right now, he's got 84,121 signatures. [NYP; Change.org]
