11 Arrests Made In Minimum Wage Strike In Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK (KTHV) – A group of demonstrators have taken to the streets, literally.

Several people are in the street at Broadway and 7th streets in front of McDonald’s protesting federal minimum wage, which is currently set at $7.25 an hour.

The demonstrators are physically in the middle of Broadway Street and Little Rock police have responded. Lt. Sidney Allen said there are approximately 50 demonstrators.

On THV11 at 9 a.m., Marielle Mohs reported that 11 arrests have been made. Lt. Allen said they were arrested for disorderly conduct, and once they are cited they will be released. He said he will release their names later today.

      At least they earned the fine. They sure didn’t earn anything by working for it. Who are these bums from St. Louis? Left overs from the Ferguson looters.

    Yet all the while none of these minimum wage workers have the mental capacity to realize they are getting paid for the skills they have. ZERO! Heck $7.25 an hour is more than enough for someone who chooses to be a slacker for the rest of their life.

    A minimum wage increase wouldn’t solve anything, if this went through then a Happy Meal would cost about Ten dollars to make up the difference to cover the Cost to be able to pay such a Minimum wage.. Do they not realize this or all of them just followers of someone else and don’t understand the real problem. Gasoline would have to go up 2 more dollars a gallon, Milk would be 10 dollars a gallon, someone needs to Step-Up and Open their mouth to where this would put the cost on everything and Not solve one thing.

    I am always amused at people who blame others for their lot in life; they take no personal responsibility and look for scapegoats at every turn. The victim mentality is alive and well in the USA.
