St. Paul, Minn. - While there was a protest at a St. Paul Walmart, it only included a handful of Walmart workers.

The company said in a statement that protests took place at stores all over the country, but again few workers were involved.

"Only 26 protests occurred at stores last night and many of them did not include any Walmart associates," said Bill Simon, Walmart U.S. President and chief executive officer.

In St. Paul, most of the protestors wer made up of worker's rights groups and unions. Still, one of the Walmart workers says it helps to have so many people behind him.

"We're definitely not going to stop after this," said Gabe Teneyuque. "Especially with this kind of support. It's on from here."

Despite the protests, Walmart said it had it's best Black Friday the company's ever had and officials added that it's just the start of a full holiday season.
