NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -
A group of Wal-Mart 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 Wal-Mart in Los Angeles and spread to stores in 12 other cities. More than 100 workers joined in the October actions.
One of the workers who plans to join next week's walkout is William Fletcher, who works at a Wal-Mart in Duarte, Calif.

Hey, my famila needs work too. ;-)
Are you implying that the employees' union supported Romney? Of course not, their union supported Obama too..........what a conundrum.
Then management can fire them all and get actual employees that will work.
All states allow unions. Some States allow workers not to join.
Wal Mart is a non-Union company. IIRC everytime one of their store's employees vote to unionize, Wal Mart closes the store.
they want a union
re: “Are you implying that the employees’ union supported Romney? Of course not, their union supported Obama too..........what a conundrum.”
I don’t know if Wal-Mart employees are unionized or not, if they are I’m sure they supported Obama, but my issue is with Sam Walton, Jr. - he supported Obama and I think it’s deserved payback that the very guy he supported is the same guy whose policies will destroy Wal-Mart as well.
As Obama’s beloved pastor said, “The chickens are coming home to roost.”
Not store locations - cities (possibly multiple stores in each).
Did anyone notice the October walkout?
They will have plenty of time for Christmas shopping as they are fired.
Perhaps the fact that Wally World moved the Black Friday Sale opening up to 8PM Thanksgiving Day has something to do with it.
A lot of retailers get organized by unions, makes it impossible to fire bad workers and raises customer prices.
Who’s going to referee all the fist-fights, riots and wrestling matches over cheap, chinese-made merchandise?
Watching You-tube videos of the melee has become kind of a tradition for me since Obummer’s constituency took hold.
This story is probably a favor the MSM is doing for some corrupt union people. The MSM shills for dems, you know that, right?
Not talking about millions but billions. See what Winston Churchill had to say about the idle rich and their corrosive effect on society. He was right.
I believe that Unions are needed for this very thing, that is, companies such as Walmart who do not take care of their bottom feeder employees. I have been to the walmart HQ in NW Arkansas. These people bust their ass to make $40K a year and the Walmart middle management is atrocious. It’s truly an unfair working environment. Did you know that Walmart will not do business with a vendor unless they place an office in NW Arkansas? Yup, its true. You better get a Regus office if you want Walmat to talk to ya. I would take Dennis Millers advise and go on the dole if your busting your ass for $40K a year. It’s not worth it. You can make that and more sitting at home reading a book.
I’m sure McDonald’s workers would quit their jobs to take the Walmart one.
Probably better pay, less stress .
Ok, how can it be black Friday on Thursday?
I am still trying to figure out how a one day sale can last three days (our local Macy’s)
Wal-Mart’s chief donated $1,000,000 to a pro-Obama PAC.
I won’t cry a river if his business suffers.
I see some Walmart’s hiring on Saturday morning.
