Walmart Workers Protest Black Friday Hours Submitted: 11/23/2012
Kenosha - We knew protests at Walmart might happen, and in southern Wisconsin, they did.

Workers at a Walmart in Kenosha demonstrated against their employer.

They're demanding respect, along with Walmart employees all over the country, who have protested the retail giant's decision to open as early as 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving night.

The company tried to get the National Labor Relations Board to stop the picketing, but the agency says the issue is too complex to rule quickly. Wal-Mart Stores say they had larger Thanksgiving and Black Friday crowds than last year.

As of this morning, Walmart processed close to ten million register transactions.
