Bargain hunters encountered protesters outside at least one Atlanta Wal-Mart on Black Friday morning.
About two dozen union protesters were walking a picket line along the crosswalk of the driveway leading to the Wal-Mart store on Howell Mill Road at I-75 in northwest Atlanta.
The picketers broke their line to let cars enter the lot, but things got testy just before 9 a.m. when the driver of a sport utility vehicle slowed for the protesters, but didnt come to a stop at the crosswalk, and nudged several of the protesters out of her way. No one appeared to have been injured in the encounter, and the SUV continued into the stores parking deck.

The joke is you know those same union goons shop at WM all the time. Maybe they should buy JCPenney and turn it into MoveOn Mart.
They're already getting over minimum wage despite the fact they are unskilled labor. Walmart is already doing them a favor to give them more than minimum wage. Expanded health coverage and full time work??? Hahahahahahahaha!!!! They voted for the usurper who will be fining them $2000 and shortening their work week. How's that election working out you morons? Walmart should fire anyone who stikes and hire a non-union employee to take their place.
A very satisfying feeling, I "nudged" several anti-nuke/MX missle/Reagan pinkos in the 80's protesting outside Spinelli Barracks in Mannheim Germany with my 5T wrecker. Good times....
Unless Walmart is the only box store around, its pretty pointless. In Jackson Michigan near where I live is 1 Walmart, 1 Sam’s Club (also Walmart) 2 Meijer stores, Best Buy, Target, Kmart, Khols....
Had this been me in that SUV with those lazy assed union entitlement leeches threatening at my car, my first response would be to roll down the window with my iPhone in video record mode and yell loudly , “I feel they are threatening my life!”....three times I’d say this.
Then I’d reach into my center console and pick up my 1911 45 ACP and grab the three extra mags with it.
“We estimate that less than 50 associates participated in the protest nationwide, Simon said.”
Wow, one per state. Those union twinkies have to have Walmart shaking in their boots.
CNN has been milking this non-story all morning.
LOL! Good idea. I just heard on FNC that one Walmart, probably the same one had between "14 and 30 protesters". The manager said none of the "protesters" were Walmart employees and were union knuckledraggers who had been bused in by the local union thugs. They did a march once around the parking lot ("about a half mile"), got their photo op and interview by Barry's "media" toadies and left. What a farce. It sounds like the union types just don't have it in them anymore. Too much like work and union types don't like work. LOL!
Read earlier this week where some union goon cited Sear and GM as the business models that WM should adopt. Amazing...
Uh, they do know GA is a right to work state?
Just think how much lower Walmart’s labor costs will be when Obama hands out green cards to 20m illegal aliens. They will be able to staff the whole system with minimum wage 28 hour/week employees.
I encountered this at that time trying to enter the Pentagon. The creatures were laying across the entrance. The GSA security personnel told us to step on them. We did but I don’t recall anyone complaining.
They aren't working anywhere for minimum wage. Well, the hotel maids and dishwashers might be.
The two pseudo-union ‘sisters’ there to represent their ‘brothers and sisters’ from another store are a couple of union-coached morons.
Little empty heads filled with all the right catch-phrases: Living Wage, oppression, WMs billions in profit but nothing for us, and on and on and on.
One day it is going to get down to what my dear ole daddy called a “set-to”. We’d better be armed when we have to confront them. The most patriotic thing anyone who is against what happened earlier this month is to buy guns, guns, ammo, ammo.
To prevent duplication, please don’t alter the published headline. Thanks.
“It sounds like the union types just don’t have it in them anymore. Too much like work and union types don’t like work. LOL!”
Or maybe they’re slowly but surely realizing who’s side the union bosses are on.
Every WM should have a contract with a tow company, signage that says “parking for customers only ...violators towed”, and at least one employee watching the parking lot video feed to see which cars belong to people who join the protest. Their rides should on the hook immediately. If it makes them feel better, someone can tell them that the tow fees pay for employee health insurance.
I am predicting today that sometime between now and the year 2020 Walmart will cave and accept a union. Cheaper in the long run to pay tribute than continue to deal with these OWS headaches every year.
Symbolically this is very, very important to unions. It will mark an about-face from Reagan firing the PATCO controllers.
1911 is nice, but I’ll grab my Sub2000 in 40S&W Glock configuration with two 32 round mags and unfold it ... you don’t want to leave anyone out who seeks the attention donchaknow.
“The amount of protesters who...”
Fox? Where did this person learn grammar? Makes me wonder when journalists can’t even write correctly. Should be “number”; “amount” is for uncountable nouns.
Though normally anti-union, In the case of ChinaMart, I say: Go union! Bring those prices up!
I had to make a trip to my local Wal-Mart around 11 pm last night; no protesters in sight, just hordes of shoppers snapping up HDTVs.
