Maiden Overseas

'Maiden Overseas' (Katrina Loncaric) and 'Mr. Wal-Mart Smiley Face' (L.J. Jellison) react to objections during a mock wedding at the Flamingo Hilton in Las Vegas, Nevada November 18, 2005. Maiden Overseas left Smiley Face in the aisle after the objections by 'Maiden America' and a variety of celebrity impersonators. The skit was held to draw attention to Wal-Mart's negative business model, said Jeralyn Lutty, vice president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International union. Representatives from seven unions are attending the 'New Hope for American Workers' union organizing conference. Actor Bobby Rogers (C) portrayed a reverend. 18 Nov 2005 REUTERS/Steve Marcus
