Taking the Pledge: The Black Friday Walmart Strike | NationofChange

Walmart workers organized a strike earlier this year, and peaceful attempts to shut down truck entrances led Walmart to respond by calling riot police, who then made mass arrests and even used pepper spray on nonviolent protesters. Backed by the United Food and Commercial Workers union, Walmart employees have given the company until Black Friday to address their concerns or face a massive walkout and potential shut-downs of super-centers across 12 states. The best way we can support these courageous workers is by taking a simple pledge to not shop at Walmart on Black Friday, and encourage our friends, family, co-workers and classmates to do the same.
