I’ve never received as many e-mails about Wal-Mart or from Wal-Mart as I have in the past couple of days. Company executives have been furiously trying to undermine Black Friday protestors and promoting their Black Friday deals, all at the same time. The organizers of the protests—rallies were planned at some 1,500 stores around the country—have been busy, too. The group of workers, OUR Walmart, is asking thatWal-Mart Stores (WMT) pay higher full-time wages, $25,000 a year, and offer more full-time work. They also want Wal-Mart to stop retaliating against workers who participate in strikes.
