Black Friday at Walmart: By the Numbers
During the biggest shopping event of the year, more than 1,000 strikes, walkouts, and community actions took at Walmart stores across the country, involving over 30,000 people in 47 states. The historic Black Friday protests marked a new era of support and solidarity with Walmart workers who are standing up for better jobs.
Jobs with Justice is proud to stand in solidarity with the courageous Walmart strikers. On Black Friday, nearly two-thirds of our extensive national network of coalitions participated in actions at at least 86 Walmart stores. In Massachussets alone, Jobs with Justice mobilized to nearly every store in the state. Meanwhile, thousands of Jobs with Justice supporters signed our petition in solidarity with the strikers.
Across the country, the numbers are only much larger:
