Massive Nationwide Protest By Walmart Workers on Black Friday
progressive.org — On Black Friday there will be over 1,000 strikes, rallies, and actions at Walmart stores across the nation. Workers began speaking out last week after Walmart told them to prepare for early store openings at 8 pm on Thanksgiving Day, in advance of Black Friday, making it impossible to spend the holiday with their families. The workers are also worried about their safety during the lethal Black Friday rush. But most of all, they are fed up with making poverty-level wages, no benefits, and facing discrimination and disrespect in their jobs for the world's largest retailer.
