Walmart: A Black Eye On Black Friday

Openmarket.org Walmart has long been one of the left’s favorite boogeymen-men, and no wonder — the company has stubbornly and successfully resisted efforts by labor unions to organize its workforce for years. Well, unions are mad as hell, and are not going to take it anymore: The retail giant is currently under siege from a labor-driven protest campaign designed to cripple the company on the year’s prime shopping day, Black Friday. Coalitions of disgruntled Walmart employees calling themselves “OUR Walmart” and “Making Change at Walmart” are organizing 1,000 protest events leading up to the day after Thanksgiving, including strikes and “online actions.” AOL reports:
Making Change at Walmart is backed by the United Food & Commercial Workers, which purports to represent 1.3 million workers in the U.S. and Canada.
