Largest-Ever Black Friday Protests at Walmart

December 1, 2014: Walmart workers and allies ramped up the pressure for $15-an-hour with protests across the country.

Walmart workers held pickets, rallies and walk-outs at more than 1,600 stores nationwide on the biggest shopping day of the year. Some workers fasted and risked arrest to highlight their demands for $15-an-hour and full-time work at Walmart, the nation’s largest employer. In Washington, organizers reported protests at 64 stores—every store in the state.
