Black Friday has begun and reached full swing in Milwaukee, but some workers at America's biggest retailer have walked off the job.
Workers at the 58th and Capitol location in Milwaukee and a Kenosha location walked off the job during Black Friday sales.
1 worker walked off in Milwaukee, while more left the job in Kenosha.
"We're here not to bash Walmart, but to make Walmart a better place to work," said Jerry Synowicz, a Walmart employee, on TODAY'S TMJ4's "Live at Daybreak."
"We want a fair wage for a good days work. We're not asking for a lot. People start at barely over minimum wage, and only go up 30 to 40 cents per year."
He cited what protesters said were needs for both better pay and better health care coverage.

One worker deciding to take the day off is a national story? No media bias here ...
Fire em....and hire someone else.
Good,GTF out!! DO NOT COME BACK, YOU’RE FIRED!
to quote don trump... “You’re fired”....
Fire him on Dec 26
Well, Jerry, if you left here and never came back, I think you would accomplish that goal ...
So they are protesting raises of a mere 30 t0 40 cents per hour a year? Have these people ever paid any attention to the incredibly puny raises union members get after long strikes? I’m talking 5 to 10 cents per hour! They want better health insurance? Don’t they like Obamacare either?
Anyone contemplating union me,bership needs to check out that union’s history and pay attention to what the union does, not what they say.
There should be at least 100 people ready to take this genius’s job. He should be thankful that he has one in the Obama Depression.
Only government unions are keeping their jobs, and even those are going to be disappearing as states, counties and cities tighten their budgets.
This is not a good time for an employee to be walking off the job. But it does tighten up the intellectual gene pool.
What a noble goal... I'm sure Walmart will reward your efforts, tool.
One worker walked off the job at H&H Bagels over his right to celebrate Festivus.
Fire the one and have the protesters arrested for trespassing.
Fire them all. Hire the scabs. Break a union for Jesus.
Walmart has a high turnover rate anyways:
These ‘workers’ just pulled a “quit with a cause” instead of the usual ‘quit’. If this union-thing wasn’t going on they most likely wouldn’t have bothered to show up for work after Thanksgiving.
Plus the usual ‘union-goons’ newly hired to ‘quit with a cause’
Real slow news day in Milwaukee. and a chance to bash Walmart. That is almost as good as bashing Scott Walker.
Hostess Twinkie them.
