Wal-Mart workers push back on Black Friday

Wal-Mart workers protested on Black Friday around Southern California, complaining about the increasingly early start to the post-Thanksgiving shopping push while also agitating for higher wages and better healthcare. The giant discounter said in a statement that nearly 10 million register transactions occurred at stores between 8 p.m. and midnight on Thanksgiving. In October, dozens of workers - including some from Los Angeles - walked off the job. They accused Wal-Mart of retaliating against dissatisfied, vocal employees.
