LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — About 60 people picketed outside a Louisville Wal-Mart as part a nationwide movement to protest labor practices at the world's largest retailer.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/XL358J ) reported the Friday protest did not appear to include employees of the store being picketed.

Picketers were made up of members from several unions and a group called Kentucky Jobs with Justice.

While picketers shouted, "This is what a union looks like!" at least one onlooker retorted, "This is what lazy looks like!"

The protest lasted about two hours.

One shopper with a shopping basket of purchases said he wanted to support the picketers but he couldn't pass up the Black Friday deals.
