The Bolsheviks seized power in Russia with very few workers taking part. That's how leftists operate. They know better than us "idiots."

Union front groups are planning more than 1,500 protests at Walmarts nationwide on Black Friday despite lacking significant support from actual employees, critics say.Technorati tags: Wal-Mart retail business big box news economy politics walmart news labor unions organized labor ufcw black friday
The Organization United for Respect at Walmart (OUR Walmart), a self-proclaimed subsidiary of the United Food and Commercial Workers retail union (UFCW), says it will picket 1,500 stores the day after Thanksgiving, one of the largest shopping days of the year.
"Associates do stick together and look out for each other. We have to because Walmart and the Waltons seem to be fine with the financial struggles that we’re all facing," Colorado Walmart employee Barbara Gertz said in an OUR Walmart release. "We’re are all in the same situation, one that Walmart creates by paying us poverty wages."
Gertz appears to represent a small minority of Walmart’s 1.3 million employees. OUR Walmart’s 2012 Black Friday protest featured thousands of demonstrators, but less than 50 actual associates, according to the company. Labor watchdogs expect more of the same this year, especially because the worker center keeps focusing on the number of protests, rather than the number of employee dissidents.
