Walmart: From 'Black' to bleak

Gray Thursday at Wal*Mart (bobjgalindo)
“Black Friday,” the commercial event that is now lasting longer and longer, may soon turn bleak for Walmart.

Reuters reports that workers at approximately 1600 Walmart stores are planning a Black Friday protest. 

They are demanding higher wages ($15 per hour), benefits, and “consistent full-time work.”

This worker group, OUR Wal-mart, threatens to “be on the street on Black Friday” if these demands remain unmet.
