Did you do any Black Friday shopping at the Walmart SuperCenter at Colfax and Wadsworth? If so, you likely saw around 150 picketers from Organization United for Respect, a group that advocates for Walmart associates; they took part in a nationwide protest against the mega-corp for its allegedly poor wages and shoddy working conditions. Look below to see photos and a video of the rally courtesy of Daniel Gonzales.
