Striking Wal-Mart workers threaten to make Black Friday even crazier
Source: MSN.COM

Nearly getting into a fistfight with a stranger over the last  Furby is a day-after-Thanksgiving tradition for millions of Black Friday shoppers, but that could change this year. Just days after Wal-Mart workers in nine states staged a walkout, the employees have raised the stakes sky-high by threatening to disrupt the busiest shopping day of the year. "If they refuse to listen to our proposition, we will make sure that on Black Friday, we will take action inside and outside of stores," Wal-Mart employee Colby Harris said. Their nonviolent definition of "taking action" could mean anything from "flash mobs to strikes to public awareness," he said. An uncontrolled mob at Wal-Mart on Black Friday? How is that different?
