Photos: Walmart in Lakewood protested by 100-plus demonstrators on Black Friday

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.
