VIDEO: Wal-Mart- booming Black Friday despite worker strikes

1 year, 4 months ago by Denise Donley

Walmarts across the country rang up 10 million transactions between 8pm Thursday through midnight — that’s 5,000 items per second.

Despite headlines hyping Walmart worker strikes on Black Friday, the mega-retail giant is claiming its best Black Friday ever.

AL JAZEERA: “The workers are protesting against low wages and the lack of benefits. A Walmart spokesman then says he doesn't believe the strike will amount to much.”

And it didn’t, at least to the company’s bottom line.
