Walmart stores around the country could be even crazier on Black Friday this year than normal thanks to a threatened walk-out by workers who want more pay and more pleasing schedules.
The workers are backed by a trio of union groups, and the protests will affect stores across the country.
Talk of the walk-out began when workers were informed they would be working on Thanksgiving Day, rather than having the day off to spend with their families.
They say the multi-billion dollar store is showing a total disregard for the family unit, and that workers who complain are being fired, having their hours cut or having their schedules changed in inappropriate ways.
The groups backing the striking workers, many of whom have already begun walking off of their jobs, are Corporate Action Network, Making Change at Walmart and OUR Walmart.
Spokesman Dan Fogleman, speaking on behalf of the Walmart corporation, said the strike is nothing more than a publicity stunt and that associates would be working on Black Friday.
