National Labor Relations Board judge rules in favor of Richmond Walmart workers

A protest is being planned outside the Walmart at Hilltop Mall in Richmond on Nov. 28, the Friday after Thanksgiving Day.

The protest, set for Black Friday, which is considered to be the biggest shopping day of the holiday season, is scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. at the store at 1400 Hilltop Mall Road.

Protesters will “stand with Walmart workers in demanding a living wage, full-time jobs, and the respect that they deserve,” said Marilyn Langlois, a Richmond planning commissioner and member of the Richmond Progressive Alliance.

Langlois promoted the protest during public forum at Richmond City Council Tuesday night.

The protest is one of thousands planned at Walmart stores nationwide. Along with full-time jobs, protesters are demanding $15 hourly wages for employees. For more information, visit here.
