Walmart Employees Plan Protest

A limited 'strike' by some Walmart employees is planned for Black Friday in an attempt to raise awareness against the nation's largest private employer. Of course, the impact, be it minimal, will have zero impact on sales as Walmart shoppers are such because of one reason--price. Lower prices means lower inputs and the largest input is salary.

Of course, this is not about Walmart, the employees will use them as an example, but low age employees clear across the board in the US are suffering. Result?

Perhaps the union can once again rise up and look after the minimum wage worker (Rather than the historical trades). But again, unlikely to happen, as the very same people who work for minimum wage shop in the stores that employ them. Vicious cycle.
