The number of protests being reported by the UFCW are grossly exaggerated & prove that this group doesn't speak for our 1.3M Walmart assocs.—

As Twitchy reported earlier, Walmart is doing fantastic business today despite thuggish walkout threats and protests organized by Big Labor.
OUR Walmart, the union-backed group behind the walkout, didn’t have a whole lot of success recruiting employees to participate. According to Walmart’s corporate news feed, OUR Walmart wasn’t even able to get 50 employees to walk out today.
Walmart president Bill Simon said that “roughly the same number of associates missed their scheduled shift as last year.” Most of the protesters were brought in by Big Labor.
Um, mic check? Mic check?
