      Protesters gather outside Reno Walmart

      RENO, Nev. - As millions of people waited in line for big deals today, not everyone was happy. Some Walmart workers gathered with friends to protest outside the stores nationwide including two locations here in Reno.

      The group said they didn't like Walmart's "poverty level pay and unfair employment practices."

      "Walmart they make record profits and here they don't even pay these people a living wage to feed their families," protester Mary Jan Roesler said.."I would love to see the Walmart corporate people try to live off of that."


      In a statement to NBC, Walmart says, "The fact is, our pay and benefits plans are as good as or better than our retail competitors, including those that are unionized."
