I was sad to read this:
Scattered Walmart strikes don't dent Black Friday bottom line
You think that enough Americans would care about their fellow Americans to know that Wal-mart's minimum wages are forcing too many of their fellow Americans to be on welfare. I guess all the "deals" and "greed" count for far more. I don't blame someone in a rural county who is stuck with Walmart, because to get a pair of underwear or a trashcan even necessitates a two hour round trip, but wow, at least stay home, while the workers are standing up for themselves. There's plenty of other days in the week. Don't be a shopper "scab"!
"Scattered strikes and protests by Walmart workers and their supporters in at least nine states may have scored symbolic points Friday by taking on the retail giant head-on, but apparently they did little to keep shoppers away as the company quickly claimed its best Black Friday ever. The company said in a statement Friday morning that its stores rang up almost 10 million transactions from the time doors opened for Black Friday shoppers at 8 p.m. Thursday until midnight, or about 5,000 items per second."
