With a single shopping day left before Christmas, a protest is scheduled to start outside a Des Moines department store this morning. Iowans who say they represent the National Labor Committee plan a demonstration outside the Wal-Mart store along with a familiar holiday figure. Paul Engler says Santa will deliver the Wal-Mart manager a bag of coal for its treatment of workers internationally. Engler claims there are many documented cases of Wal-Mart using sweatshops and child labor overseas. Engler says his group will be singing anti-sweatshop carols to educate shoppers about the department store chain’s policies. He says demonstrators will be passing out post cards so shoppers can communicate their feelings to Wal-Mart corporate officials.
