On Last Call we took calls about the strikes by WalMart workers this Friday across the country and the local actions in support of the laborers. The day after Thanksgiving is typically the busiest shopping day of the year -- called Black Friday by shoppers and Buy Nothing Day by people protesting the hyperconsumerism. Joining me to talk about what’s being called Occupy Black Friday and the WalMart Worker Solidarity Protest is Jennifer Romanelli Mitchell. She is helping to organize protests at the WalMart in Pinellas Park.
