Walmart workers demanding higher wages walked off the job in Brooklyn Center Monday.

Similar strikes are happening across the country ahead of Black Friday. Workers are staging a national strike on the busiest shopping day of the year.

Congressman Keith Ellison joined the employees in Brooklyn Center to support their cause.

The workers are asking for at least $25,000 a year and for the company to provide full time positions for those who want them.
