What about you?

It is time we turned the tide back the other way and the best way we can do that is by boycotting.

Your link is to some of those who DID close.
If you want people to think about boycotting those who did not, you should list those instead.


So, who specifically are you boycotting?

Most hourly employees volunteer to work the holidays for the money benefit of at least time and a half or double time.

No they don't. Total myth. Some do, but hardly 'most'.
At best you might get to volunteer which holidays to work, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's. Or maybe you get to choose which shift on the holiday you prefer, but very, very few employees can choose not to work the holidays if the business is open.
Some companies make you work the actual holiday and then schedule an extra day off during the pay period, meaning you have worked the holiday for no additional increase in your paycheck. Nice huh?
