Walmart employees and their supporters protested at 1,500 store locations in cities nationwide on Black Friday 2013 to demand increased wages and more working hours. They came out in huge numbers despite the fact that Walmart has fired striking workers in the past. Marc Bowers worked at Walmart for eight years before he was fired after participating in a strike. He is back protesting again. “If you let people know what’s going on, they’ll get involved too,” he said.
