Workers join 'Fight for 15' rally in hopes of higher minimum wage

A large rally occurred at SFO on Tuesday. Workers are calling for a higher minimum wage.

It's part of the nationwide "Fight for 15" protests.

Hundreds gathered for a rally outside of the international terminal at SFO for a rally.

Union workers from across the Bay Area are calling for better pay. People who participated in the rally included retail workers, fast food workers, airport employees along with Uber and Lyft drivers. 

Earlier Tuesday morning arrests were made in Oakland during a protest calling for a higher minimum wage. Oakland police gave protesters several warnings Tuesday morning to leave an intersection.

In the end a couple dozen people decided to stay put. They were arrested, cited and released.

More than 200 people took part the Fight for 15 demonstration.  One of the people arrested this morning was Ernestina Sandoval who earns $11.52 an hour working at a Richmond McDonalds. 

Even though California's minimum wage is set to go up to $15 dollars an hour by 2022, organizers say workers across the country deserve better wages too.
