Rashida Tlaib arrested at pro-labor rally

Detroit — Rashida Tlaib, the near-certain replacement for John Conyers in the U.S. House of Representatives, was arrested with 17 others Tuesday during a pro-labor rally in Detroit.

Hundreds gathered at Warren and Woodward avenues and marched down Woodward to a McDonald's as part of a national walkout of workers from McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and other chains organized by the Fight for $15, which advocates for a $15 per hour minimum wage.
