Wal-Mart employees threaten to walk off the job on Black Friday

Black Friday is undoubtedly one of the busiest shopping days of the year and it could get even busier.

Workers at 28 Wal-Marts across the country walked off the job this week. And now they are threating to walk out on Black Friday.

Employees have even started picketing stores.

The Wal-Mart associates say they want better pay and health benefits for the part-time employees.

But most importantly, they want the company to stop pushing out workers who threaten to unionize.

"I come back and they tell me you're fired. And I say for what? I didn't do anything," said Elaine Rozier.

Another employee said that the company is out of touch with its workers.

"They're so out of touch with their associates that they don't even realize how  many of their associates are unhappy," Charlene Fletcher said.

If these thousands of workers decide to walkout on Black Friday, experts say it would be a loss of over $300 million on Friday alone.
