Wal-mart employees are subjected to low pay and long working hours, as well as the disrespect and abuse of irritated shoppers. If they feel they are being abused by their employers, they have the right to walk out and refuse to work in a non-essential privately operated business if they choose to do so.
I may not agree with what they are doing but it is their constitutional right to do as such. Anyone who would try to stop them from doing so would be hindering these rights. Honestly though, when you accept the job you accept the pay. Unless they decreased their pay I don't see why they deserve or feel entitled to more money.
People have a right to stand up for their rights and protest for mistreatment. People should never be oppressed in silence. Black Friday is the perfect day to protest as well since Black Friday is a huge shopping day. Walmart can't get away with paying their workers ridiculously low wages
They are completely justified in scheduling a walk out. If a company is cruel to their employees and employees who speak out are essentially forced to silence by the company then something major needs to happen. The protest on Black Friday may be a great demonstration if enough people participate seeing as how it is such a major shopping day.
Yes, I believe that Wal-Mart employees are very justified in their plans to walk out in protest on Black Friday. Recently, there has been a strike at Hostess, which caused them to shut down, however, in Hostess' case, the company was near bankruptcy and the strike pushed them over the limit, not to mention their workers were given fair pay. On the other hand, Wal-Mart makes over a hundred times as much as Hostess does, yet they pay their workers even less than Hostess. Wal-Mart employees have every right to go on strike, and Black Friday would be the perfect day to hit Wal-Mart where it hurts.
Yes, Wal-Mart employees are justified in their plans to walk out in protest on Black Friday. It is absolutely ridiculous to start Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving Day is a holiday for families. Expecting employees and shoppers to cut their holiday short in order to take advantage of sales is an extremely desperate and greedy move by Wal-Mart. Not only should Wal-Mart employees walk out in protest, but shoppers should also show their support by boycotting the Wal-Mart black Friday sales. That is the only way Wal-Mart will get the message. If they are allowed to get away with this this year, then next year they will try to open at 8am on Thanksgiving Day.
