OUR Walmart Black Friday Protesters
Declare It Red Letter Day For Workers!
With
. Elaine Rosier, Walmart worker, Miami Florida
. Gabe Teneyuque, Walmart striker, St. Paul, Minnesota
. Secaucus, New Jersey Walmart worker allies

Walmart faced not only a throng of shoppers on Black Friday but what a union-
backed group, Organization for Respect at Walmart, (“Our Walmart”) said was
the biggest wave of protests that the retailer had ever seen; 1,000 stores had
demonstrations in 46 states, ranging from a couple of community supporters’
asking to talk with store managers about raising wages to raucous
demonstrations in California, New Jersey and Washington that each attracted
hundreds of people. “In its 50-year history, Wal-Mart has never seen strikes like
those we’re seeing today,” said Lynsey Kryzwick, a spokeswoman for OUR
Walmart, which works closely with the United Food and Commercial Workers
International Union. “It will be hard for Wal-Mart to ignore all these workers and
their allies calling for change at Wal-Mart from improving the low wages and
unfair working conditions to fighting retaliation. Our Walmart, has filed a
complaint with the National Labor Relations Board, saying that Wal-Mart had
violated federal laws against intimidating workers who seek to strike or
otherwise protest by saying there could be consequences — in the form of
dismissals, demotions or reduction in work hours.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
