More than a dozen demonstrators were arrested Friday outside of a Walmart in Roseville.

Police say they were blocking an intersection.

Current and former Walmart workers, and their supporters, held signs and rallied against some of the retail giant’s policies – namely treatment of workers and its affect on mom and pop stores.

The scene in Roseville was part of a larger, nationwide protest.

Despite the protests, Walmart said its stores saw record Black Friday turnout.
