MSP Airport workers rally for $15 minimum wage

Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport workers, joined by recently-appointed Metropolitan Airports Commissioner Ibrahim Mohamed rallied for $15 minimum wage and union rights on Wednesday afternoon.

The rally comes on the heels of a new report released by the Center for Popular Democracy , which contends there's a disproportionately high poverty rate for the East African communities in Minnesota, and that MSP Airport, the largest employer of those workers in the state, can help.

Gov. Mark Dayton is also calling for higher wages at the airport this session, saying MSP can afford to pay workers a decent wage.

Workers gathered at the Terminal 2 light rail platform.
