Frustrated Walmart associates say they are planning 1,000 "protest actions" for Black Friday in at least five major cities. Making Change at Walmart campaign, the union-backed association organizing the strikes, also said that the strikes will spread over the coming week, culminating on Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year.
Strikes have already begun at scattered Walmart stores, the first time there have been worker strikes in the company's 50-year history. It began with a day-long walkout in Southern California, but quickly rippled out to 28 Walmart stores in 12 different cities. Workers at contracted Walmart warehouses in Southern California went on strike yesterday, and this morning, 30 associates from six Walmart stores in Seattle walked out, according to Sarah Gilbert, one of the striking workers.
