Stand With Striking Wal-Mart Workers On Black Friday

By Dennis Trainor, Jr.

The Wal-Mart strike, which originated in Los Angeles, has spread to 12 cities and counting. A series of strikes will occur next week that has the potential to paralyze the world’s largest retailer on the biggest shopping day of the year.

A United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) official says employees will stage 1,000 unique protests around the country on Black Friday.

In additional to walkouts, there will be flash mobs, and other creative protest aimed at “educating” shoppers on the Wal-Mart workers struggle to attain a fair and decent wage and working conditions.
