Black Friday Protests

For the third year in a row, Wal-Mart workers are protesting Black Friday. A union backed group called OUR Wal-Mart says employees are sick and tired of getting low wages, schedule cuts, and non full-time positions. Chicago is one of eight cities that will see protests during one of the busiest shopping days of the year. African Americans are also among the many groups to protest that day. After the recent Ferguson decision, the activist group Blackout For Human Rights, created the hashtag BlackoutBlackFriday to encourage African Americans to fight racial injustices from an economic standpoint. We check in with those protests. Photo Courtesy of Facebook
