But all that social media solidarity doesn’t seem to be hurting Walmart’s sales. Despite the best efforts of leftists like Robert Reich to convince shoppers to boycott the retail giant, the Christmas shopping season looks like it’s off to a great start at Walmart stores.
Wal-Mart: 22M+ customers served since opening stores last night, with 10M register transactions and 5,000 items/sec. processed at peak time.—

Sorry, union organizers. Better luck next year.
Walmart estimates no more than 50 workers walked out on their jobs on Black Friday. Heckuva job, unions!
