Fighting City Hall Over Minimum Wage

CLEVELAND, OH  - Several dozen protesters marched from Public Square to the steps of Cleveland City Hall on Monday, denouncing Mayor Frank Jackson and members of city council who blocked legislation that would have required a $15 per hour minimum wage in Cleveland. 

Organizer Anthony Cauldwell of SEIU Local 1199 says they are renewing their fight by targeting to defeat council members who opposed the $15 dollar an hour wage. 

Michelle Burke is running for council in Ward 13 and say her main motivation is the establishment of a $15 and hour wage. 

Cauldwell says they are also trying to put a measure on the ballot that would resend the the deal to renovate Quicklen Loans Arena. They want those resources spent on neighborhood projects.
