Walmart Is Downplaying It, But Black Friday Protests Were Historic
dailykos.com — Context matters. Walmart wants us to think of the context of its vast numbers of employees who didn't strike on Black Friday. That's a real context. But so is the fact that history was made in October when Walmart workers staged a rolling series of one-day strikes, the first such strikes in Walmart's 50-year history. The Black Friday actions made history again, and they made it bigger. The question is whether this is the peak of worker activism at Walmart, or just the beginning.
