It wasn’t clear early Friday afternoon how many workers took part in the strike, and Walmart said it doesn’t know how many employees were involved.
In a photo of the scene emailed to The Huffington Post, one man held up a sign reading, “Queremos Nuestras 40 Horas,” or “We Want Our 40 Hours.”
“Customers going to the Walmart in Hialeah Gardens didn’t get the usual greeting as they walked into the store Friday.
Instead, they saw about 100 employees from the store, at 9300 77th Ave., who had walked off the job in the morning to demand a change in management.
At 9 a.m., employees gathered outside the front of the store and started to march, chanting for better hours and fair treatment.”
