I guess we should tell people not to drive anywhere on the holiday either. My relative is a toll taker on one of the toll roads here. He has to work that day.
Going to the movies is another big family Thanksgiving thing (for many people). That means people at the theaters have to work that day too.
I am guessing the people who have to work that day schedule their holiday around their work hours, just like my family does.
