Walmart Hit by Black Friday Protest - Michigan

Dozens of protestors gathered Friday at a Dearborn Walmart to protest the company's working conditions, part of similar demonstrations around the country.

Protestors started chanting "Walmart workers deserve respect!" inside the store shortly after noon. They carried signs, and some shook tambourines as they marched around the store, making it virtually impossible for those inside to shop and move around. A large crowd gathered to videotape the protest as police kept the rally moving outside, where it lasted until 12:30 p.m.

The protestors were made up of members of Good Jobs Now, Occupy Detroit and the United Food and Commercial Workers 876.
