Advocates for $15 minimum wage rally in Minneapolis, turn in petitions


Advocates pushing Minneapolis to mandate a $15 minimum wage marched into City Hall on Wednesday, waving signs, beating drums and carrying a stack of petitions with the signatures of about 20,000 people.

Organizers had been working since late February to gather the 6,869 registered voters’ signatures required to put a charter amendment proposal on the ballot this November. They said they hit that number within a few weeks, but kept up the petition drive.
