MISSOULA, Mont. -

Half a dozen picketers stand outside the Super Walmart in Missoula standing in solidarity with employees and their right to speak out for better working conditions.

The response is mixed. OneĀ  worker saidĀ  Walmart is a good place to work, and unions don't help. Another man said unions don't protect workers anyway.

Protests are part of national effort.
