Wal-Mart employees and union supporters are taking part in today's nationwide demonstration for better pay and benefits. A union-backed group called OUR Walmart, which includes former and current workers, staged the demonstrations and walkouts at hundreds of stores on Black Friday, the day when retailers traditionally turn a profit for the year.
