In response to the UFCW's planned protests, Simon added, "Only 26 protests occurred at stores last night and many of them did not include any Walmart associates." In addition, the company did not experience the walk-offs that were promised by the UFCW. "We estimate that less than 50 associates participated in the protest nationwide. In fact, this year, roughly the same number of associates missed their scheduled shift as last year," Simon said.Walmart associates receive a 10 percent discount on general merchandise bought at Walmart stores all year long. Earlier this holiday season, the company rewarded associates with a special holiday discount of 10 percent off most food items from November 9 to January 1 to help make the holidays for its associates and their families even more special.
