There is no need to be open over any public holidays, we survived without it in the past when shops were also closed Sundays & we didn’t even have late night shopping on Thursdays.
The retail & hospitality sectors are forcing staff to work those days by giving them an ultimatum of not having a job if they refuse. One of my children was told by a retail giant that he had to work or don’t expect a job to come back to if he refused, it happened again in a small business when he asked for some time over Xmas to spend it with his father.
Surely we can survive a few days without having to go shopping, what happened to being organised & doing shopping beforehand, with all the options & technology available these days it is even easier for people to get organised.
