L.A. County Workers Rally For Higher Wages

Thousands of local workers protested in downtown Los Angeles.

Thousands of Los Angeles County workers demanded higher wages as they marched downtown Tuesday morning.

Members of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 721, walked off their jobs after their contracts expired at midnight. According to union organizers, workers are tired of having county administrators dismiss their requests, especially those calling for an increase in pay.
