Walmart Worker: 'I Want To Play Football With My Son'

I want to make a suggestion. I'd like everyone who reads this to email everyone they know with a link to these videos, and ask them not to shop at any store on Thanksgiving night, and to support the Walmart Black Friday strike.

This is some of the most moving and powerful advocacy I have ever seen on television, and I'm grateful to Chris Hayes for the fine work he continues to do. You cannot watch this without responding to the quiet dignity of these Walmart workers, who want a living wage and humane working conditions.

And, as one worker put it, to spend Thanksgiving with his kids and play a little football.

If you'd like to help, here's the Walmart Strikers Food Fund.
