So says CNN. Apparently the strike is attempting vertical integration. It's worth noting that Walmart is now doing Black Thursday as the main event (prior to this) in order to make sure that retail continues to be an arms race to who can ruin the most holidays for the most employees. So this is sort of their mouthpiece/donation thing, which offers some more details. I guess Blackwater can stand in for the Pinkertons, or Walmart can just offer gift certificates to the ravening hordes of customers for each striker scalp.
