WalMart is the largest private employer in the US yet their employees are among the lowest paid and most abused by any corporate entity.
Show your support for these down-trodden workers by boycotting all WalMart stores on Black Friday.(Do you really need to keep buying Chinese-made products that you will yard sale or throw away in a few years anyway?)
Don't shop at WalMart this Friday! And if you work there join in the strikes. It will send a much needed message to the WalMart corporation.
And if they fire you, just remember there are plenty of $8-9hr jobs here.

I think it's disgusting that a large company abuses it's employees the way they do. I am sire if employees weren't afraid of being fired they would protest.

Quit your whining. So they have to work on the Friday after Thanksgiving. What's the big deal? I don't see you crying for the convienence store workers that are working after Thanksgiving so that you can purchase some cool ones to add to your already obese gut. If they don't want to work, then don't work.

Hi April. I understand completely that they are afraid to strike for fear of losing their jobs.
But at least WE, you and I, and everyone who reads this, we can AT LEAST stay out of WalMart on Friday.
I only buy groceries there anyway.
If millions of Americans would BOYCOTT WalMart for just that one day, it would send a message to their corporate slavemasters.

On the contrary, it will not send a message to the "corporate slavemasters". The company is not going to simply absorb the losses that it would incur if a boycott or strike were to happen. It will simply pass on those costs to its employees through layoffs and to its customers through increased prices.

Don't trust that it is so easy to find jobs elsewhere right now. It isn't.

Shut your stupid mouths and get a job yourself and you won't have time to worry about the other whiners who think they should get something for nothing. When this Obama fiasco finally comes to a head you buffoons who voted for him will be the first ones to whine. I guarantee it. Free health care, bahahaha.

I'm betting that when they were hired by Walmart they knew the work schedule and the pay rate, with that being said get your ass to work I need to buy some dog food.
