GOSHEN — Organized labor and their advocates said they planned a protest at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29, outside the Walmart at 4024 Elkhart Road (U.S. 33) in Goshen.

A statement from the group, calling itself “OURWalmart,” said Walmart workers are underpaid and penalized when they try to exercise their rights under federal law.

The group also planned to protest at 10 a.m. outside the Walmart at 120 Indian Ridge Blvd., Mishawaka.

The protests were planned on Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year.

Or it can reject aid, retain its private beach and allow erosion and other issues to worsen. (AP Photo/Emily Dooley)
