Minneapolis, MN – Hundreds of people were on the picket line at 6 a.m. Jan. 20, in front of Home Depot in northeast Minneapolis to support striking janitors, who are standing up to low wages and Trump’s anti-worker agenda.

According to a statement from organizers, “Janitors who clean Home Depot are paid poverty wages by their subcontractor and have been organizing for years to win fair wages and the right to form a union without retaliation. If Trump has his way, these workers’ wages will go even lower – as Trump told the country in November 2016, ‘wages are too high.’”

Protests and marches coinciding with Trump’s inauguration are taking place across the U.S.

A massive anti-Trump protest will take place at 5 p.m., Jan. 20, at the Minneapolis City Hall.
