Walmart Employees plan Black Friday strike

On November 16 Fox News reported that a Walmart walkout is being planned by employees during black friday 2012. The popular store who is always at the center of controversial affairs is one of the busiest stores nationwide and especially on black friday. Walmart always has some of the best deals for their products so a strike is definitely a big deal. According to the report many of the stores employees are very angry with the way the company treats them and their co-workers. However to plan a retaliation strike on black friday would be detrimental to Walmart because it is most definitely the most popular shopping day of the year for Americans.

Both Walmart retail store workers and warehouse sector workers have called for nation-wide protests. The employees are calling for a  strike and protest in the days leading up to Black Friday which is only 1 week from today. Walmart has still not made an statement in regards to their employees asking for better pay, benefits and management.

Why are we standing up to live better?

Charlene Fletcher and her husband are both Walmart employees that work in the same store in California. She spoke out about the matter and said,  “When our co-workers speak about problems like these, Walmart turns their schedules upside down, cuts their hours, and even fires people.” Charlene and Mr. Fletcher are both planning to go on strike this Black Friday because the store had scheduled both of them to work on Thanksgiving day which leaves their children home alone celebrating with out them. That does seem a little rough so it’s definitely understandable why the two would be upset.

Following the employees statement a Walmart spokesperson released this statement to Fox News:

We have a great group of associates at Walmart. We’ll have more than one million associates working throughout the holiday weekend and they are excited about our Black Friday plans this year. This is the Super Bowl for retailers and we’re ready. We’ve been working on our Black Friday plans for almost a year now and we’re prepared to have a great event. Our associates care about providing a great customer experience on Black Friday and we’re confident that’s what customers will have at Walmart this year.”

It doesn’t look like Walmart seems to care to much about their employees even when they speak out.. The spokesperson didn’t even acknowledge the fact that a potential strike in underway right before the biggest shopping day of the year..

Oh well..
