Some Santas were not feeling merry outside a Tucson Walmart Monday.

Walmart stopped offering holiday pay for workers in 2016 and now uses a system where workers accrue time off based on hours worked.

The group says the system isn't fair.

Pima County Supervisor Richard Elias spoke at the rally supporting the workers.

KGUN9 has reached out to Walmart for comment on the protest and so far there has been no response.
