Wal-Mart strike extends to Chicago, among other cities
October 10, 2012 (WLS) -- Wal-Mart workers extended a strike to 12 cities on Wednesday, including Chicago.
The protests are headed by the group called United Food and Commercial Workers Making Change at Wal-Mart.
They're calling for higher wages and protection against union-busters.
Protest officials warn that they'll stage a massive walk-out on Black Friday if Wal-Mart won't negotiate.
The strike, which started last Friday, is the first in Wal-Mart's history.
