Milwaukee is targeted for striking WalMart workers

Milwaukee is one of the markets being targeted for a strike by WalMart workers on Black Friday.

Workers are protesting what the union said was Wal-Mart’s manipulation of hours and benefits, efforts to keep people from working full time and discrimination against women and minorities.
The strikes are the first of what the group said are 1,000 protests planned in Milwaukee, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Los Angeles, Minnesota and Washington ahead of “Black Friday” on Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving.

1. Wonder why they let out the cities targeted?

I'm hoping there'll be strikes everywhere Mal-Wart operates.
