Walmart Employees Who Work On Thanksgiving Will Get Turkey Dinner, Extra Pay

It came as no surprise yesterday when Walmart announced it would be open on Thanksgiving Day. But, to sweeten the deal for store associates who won't have the holiday off, Walmart will bring Thanksgiving to them.

Walmart employees who have to work on Thanksgiving will be treated to a catered turkey dinner with all the trimmings, including mashed potatoes, rolls and pie for dessert. The meals will be provided to some 1 million associates working on Thursday, Nov. 28. In addition, Thanksgiving Day workers will also receive an extra day's pay and 25 percent off a future purchase.
