DALLAS, TX -- Some Kris Kringles have had it with the milk and cookies and are demanding change at Walmart. As in, they want more money, honey!

"We're out here to ask Walmart to bring back holiday pay for its workers," one protester said. "Just like a Grinch, they just stole it away from its workers and the workers would like to get holiday pay back."

"It's not fair for the one's who have to work on holiday pay," another protester said.

These frustrated "Santas" aren't just raising signs in Texas. They're protesting in New York:


Chicago... the list goes on!

Walmart sent NewsFix a statement:

"Walmart’s Paid Time Off program is designed to give associates more stability in their lives. Both full- and part-time associates receive a paid day for each Walmart holiday, and it’s important that our people have the control and flexibility to decide how they use that extra paid time. At the end of the year, hourly associates can rollover some unused PTO and can cash out the remainder to use as they please.”

Walmart told us, "What they're claiming...is patently false...No time is being taken away."

Doesn't look like that's stopped these protesters from putting Walmart on their naughty list!
