As Black Friday approaches Americans from all over the country are preparing to protest the horrendous labor practices of some of the world’s largest corporations – including its largest retailer, Walmart. Walmart uses slave labor from around the world in places like Bangladesh as well as forcing American taxpayers to subsidize their employees’ food and medical needs. Though the company does help employees get food for Thanksgiving meals – from other employees. I guess that’s compassionate conservatism? But Walmart is striking back with support of a group called Work Center Watch that targets Black Friday protesters in an PR campaign denoted as “Black Lieday.” Who registered the group? The firm once head of lobbying for Walmart which is led by a former Walmart Executive. TheNation.com has discovered that Worker Center Watch was registered by the former head lobbyist for Walmart.
