Walmart Workers May Walk On Black Friday
A group of WalMart workers are planning to stage a walkout next week on Black Friday, arguably the biggest holiday shopping day for the world's largest retail store. The walkout builds on an October strike that started at a WalMart in Los Angeles and spread to stores in 12 other cities. More than 100 workers joined in the October actions. Sara Gilbert of a Walmart in Seattle, said she walked once and will do it again.
The union backed groups OUR Walmart and Making Change at WalMart, and a watchdog group Corporate Action Network, are calling on the nation's largest employer to end what they call retaliation against employees who speak out for better pay, fair schedules and affordable health care. They say walkout's will occur in Minnesota, Wisconsin and other states as well.
