Where to Find Your Wal-Mart Black Friday Protests


Will you drive on over to your local Wal-Mart on Black Friday morning, only to find yourself confronted by capitalism's misdeeds, in the form of protesting Wal-Mart workers demanding something approaching a living wage? Here is a list of planned Wal-Mart Black Friday actions around the country. Simply click to find out whether or not you will be forced to feel guilty as you shop for cheap plastic crap (or where you can go to help make others feel guilty for shopping for cheap plastic crap). You can also donate money here to sponsor a striking Wal-Mart work, if you are into that sort of thing.

Also, if you're interested in the economics of this issue, here is a study that Demos released yesterday that says that raising the salary of all full time workers at large retailers to $25,000 per year would lift more than 700,000 people out of poverty, at a cost of only a 1% price increase for customers. (Corporatist dissenters of this study, please feel free to air your grievances in the discussion section below.)
