Dozens Arrested During Fight For 15 Protest

St. Louis, MO  (KTRS)  Dozens of protesters were arrested Tuesday night after blocking Hampton near I-44 during a Fight For Fifteen demonstration.

Fast food worker Betty Douglas was among the hundreds who gathered for the rally and march in south St. Louis. “I make $7.90. I work for McDonald’s, a billion-dollar company and its just ridiculous. Who can live off of $7.90. I don’t get any assistance.”

Bram Osterhout, a student at Washington University, also turned out for the demonstration. “Low wage jobs really hold people back.  Millions and millions are stuck where they are at a very unfortunate position.”

“It really holds our country back economically.” added Osterhout.

This demonstration was among hundreds staged throughout the country yesterday in a continued effort to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
