Rashida Tlaib and Abdul El-Sayed were 2 of 18 protesters arrested during the “Fight for $15” protest for higher wages and union rights. The protest was held in front of a McDonald’s in Detroit, Michigan.
After police officers asked the protesters to move on the sidewalk, Tlaib and El-Sayed, along with others, ignored the police officer’s commands and remained seated at a table in the street. The protesters screamed as they pounded on the table, until officers arrested them for disorderly conduct.
Tlaib and El-Sayed, along with 16 other protesters arrested, were cited and released. They each face a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.
