More than a dozen union staffers, advocates and fast food workers brought a nationwide movement to Tacoma Thursday morning, chanting and picketing outside a Sixth Avenue Arby's restaurant in support of $15-an-hour-wages for fast food workers. The restaurant asked the pickets to leave their property, and the protest moved to the sidewalk along the busy thoroughfare.
