NOVEMBER 27, 2012 / BY LYLA BUGARA Democracy Now! covers historic Black Friday Walmart strike

Yesterday Democracy Now! aired a segment on the historic Walmart Black Friday strike. Last Friday — on the busiest shopping day of the year — workers and their supporters protested Walmart's abusive employment pratices at more than 1,000 store locations. Although Walmart's Black Friday sales reportedly brought in substantial profits for the company, the strikes successfully sent Walmart a powerful message about demanding fair wages and treatment — and we're just getting started.

Please take a few moments and join us by calling Chairman of the Board Rob Walton to demand he meet with Walmart workers and improve working conditions for all employees. Our script helps make the call easy.
