Black Friday Could Be Very Black at Walmart

What if the shoppers showed up and there were no workers?  That’s the dilemma the nation’s largest low wage employer/retailer could be facing on the day after Thanksgiving.  Common Dreams has reposted an article by Josh Eidelson of the Nation, who reports that Walmart workers across the U.S are discussing a major work stoppage on Black Friday.

Negotiation is all about leverage.  Walmart will never need its works so much as it will on Black Friday.  A major walk out on that day will send a message.  Hopefully Walmart and other workers will hear it.  All workers deserve a living wage.
