Codey Wants to Protect 'Big Box' Workers from Losing Their Thanksgiving to Work

Codey Wants to Protect 'Big Box' Workers from Losing Their Thanksgiving to Work
BY RICHARD McGRATH
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON — With an increasing number of “big box” stores opening earlier and for longer hours on Thanksgiving, Senator Richard J. Codey said on Tuesday that he will consider advancing legislation that would prevent the stores from opening for business before 9:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

“The increased pressure among these stores to open earlier and stay open later cuts into their holiday or eliminates it altogether for the store workers,” said Senator Codey. “They are put in position to either work on Thanksgiving or risk losing their jobs. This would allow them to be with their families to give thanks, as other families do.”

In Massachusetts, Maine and Rhode Island, blue laws prevent stores from opening earlier than midnight on Thanksgiving.

Senator Codey noted that the voters in Bergen County have supported the county-wide ban on store business on Sundays.
