Minneapolis Police Arrest Minimum Wage Protesters

Minneapolis police arrested nearly two-dozen protesters during a wage rally.

Around 130 people rallied outside of a McDonald’s in support of a $15 an hour wage.

Fast-food employees, janitors and other low-paid workers attended the rally.

Demonstrators chanted, waved signs and sat in the intersection as part of a “Day of Resistance for $15 and Union Rights.”

Some Metro Transit buses were briefly rerouted.

Police say the predawn assembly was peaceful, but officers arrested 21 people.
