Thanksgiving tale of two different franchises - Sears - Pizza Hut

A Sears franchise owner refuses to open on Thanksgiving despite orders from headquarters: 

"I value my employees enough that I wouldn't have them have to work on a day that's mean to be spent with family."

Shameful! Pizza Hut Manager Fired After Refusing to Make His Employees Work on Thanksgiving 

Pizza Hut's response on their Facebook page:

"Update on Elkhart, IN: we feel strongly that the situation involving our independent franchisee and the local store manager could and should have been avoided. We fully respect an employee’s right to not work on a holiday, which is why the vast majority of Pizza Huts in America are closed on Thanksgiving. As a result, we strongly recommended that the local franchisee reinstate the store manager and they have agreed. We look forward to them welcoming Tony back to the team."
