Workers at Walmart stores and the warehouses that supply those stores are striking across the country ahead of Black Friday, to protest what they say are poor working conditions and retaliation by Walmart.
In this photo — provided to Up w/ Chris Hayes by Warehouse Workers United — David Garcia and Manolo Fernandez, workers at a warehouse operated by a Walmart subcontractor in southern California, hold up a thermometer showing the temperature in warehouse at 102 degrees. Walmart says it does not control the conditions in the warehouses, which are run by the subcontractors.
