Walmart workers striking on Black Friday
 
http://money.cnn.com/2012/11/15/new...t-black-friday/

In response to union-busting and generally shitty work policies. Definitely hitting them where it hurts, probably the most important shopping day of the year. I'm interested in seeing how far they'll bend if it really affects their sales numbers.

I am a Walmart worker (in Canada) and I approve.

Trowzaa 11-16-2012 12:11 AM

Good. Didn't one of them die last year?

Pagan_Poetry 11-16-2012 12:14 AM

What a bunch of racists.

Nelshizzle 11-16-2012 12:14 AM

Good for them. No one deserves to get swarmed by primal violent human nature.

I heard Walmart started sales like a week early.

Dirge Humani 11-16-2012 12:16 AM

All that's going to happen is a shit ton of temps will be hired.

I heard a woman was trampled to death on Long Island but she didn't work there.

People are dickheads on Black Friday.

Nah. Depends on the store. There are ones down here that close and shit, which was news to me, cause in NY we run our Walmarts like cheap Brooklyn *****s, all night long.

I don't think I've stepped into a Walmart in years.

"In 2012, Walmart led several other retailers in announcing it would open its stores at 8:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day [8], prompting calls for a walkout among some workers."

that's kind of funny wording since pretty much every Walmart is open 24 hours 7 days a week.
