    No strikers in my Walmart, not last night, not this morning.

    Can't yet find any strikers at any Walmart in the news, perhaps some 30 or so in Miami, and one each at 5 other stores accross the country.

    Looks like another fail by union thugs that no one cares about.

    Here's a quote from an article on the LA Times web page:

    http://www.latimes.com/business/money/la-fi-tn-black-friday-costa-mesa-20121123,0,2542161.story

    From the article:

    "Wal-Mart touts 'best ever' Black Friday / 8:33 a.m.

    After opening earlier than in previous Thanksgiving weekends, Wal-Mart reported its “best ever Black Friday” sales, including bigger crowds than last year, the company said Friday.

    The retailer rolled out deals starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. From 8 p.m. to midnight, Wal-Mart processed nearly 10 million register transactions, handling 5,000 items a second, the company said. Mmore than 22 million shopped in Wal-Mart's stores during the four-hour period.

    Last year, the chain opened at 10 p.m.

    More than 1.3 million employees are staffing the holiday weekend, Wal-Mart U.S. chief executive Bill Simon said in a statement.

    The company split its sales into three time periods, each with a different type of merchandise available. At 8 p.m., toys, games and home apparel went on sale. At 10 p.m., electronics. At 5 a.m., jewelry, tools and other items.

    Since 8 p.m. Thursday, Wal-Mart had sold 1.8 million towels, 1.3 million televisions, 1.3 million dolls and 250,000 bicycles, the company said in a statement released at about 6:30 a.m. PST.

    “We had very safe and successful Black Friday events at our stores across the country and heard overwhelmingly positive feedback from our customers,” Simon said."

    Just heard only 50 employees nationwide did not show up their schedule shifts .. I bet they dont have jobs tomorrow. They had protesters over 400 in Maryland but none were walmart employees but union THUGS.. and it did not curb people from coming in. You should want people to shop to turn around the economy but not UNION thugs they want companies to turn into Hostess

    You obviously have an internet access or you wouldn't be posting here. Ever hear of Google?

    I never ever use Google, there are other search engines out there. Twit.

    I have been keeping an eye on it, how the fuck do you think i found the article I posted a few posts back?

    It just isn't happening, it's a huge fail by the union thugs. No one cares.

    I saw a brief blurb on Fox News about some union protesters by a Maryland Walmart. She was black, fat and ugly and was demanding all sorts of stuff. She also did not work at Walmart but was a minister at some local black church in the area. Did not have a large group of supporters behind her. She also sounded like a 5th grader when she talked as she did not have a very good command of the English language.
