Six women were arrested during the demonstration where about 225 people gathered outside the Walmart store to protest the retail giant's labor practices. A showdown continues between Walmart and the neighboring District of Columbia, where Mayor Vincent Gray could sign a bill that would make large retailers to pay their employees a 50 percent premium over the city's minimum wage.
