Walmart Employees Take Part in Historic Black Friday Strike

Walmart retail workers across the country went on strike during the busiest shopping day of the year. Employees of the world's largest retailer and hundreds of their supporters held rallies outside of several Los Angeles-area Walmart stores. They're calling for better wages and benefits as well as an end to what they allege is workplace harassment. Nine protestors were arrested outside of a Walmart Supercenter in southeast Los Angeles. Pacifica KPFK's Ernesto Arce was there and files this report.
