ST. PAUL, (AP) – Hundreds of low-wage workers marched along University Avenue in St. Paul to demand higher pay on a day when many people are concentrating on their holiday spending spree.

The Friday march stretched for blocks down University Avenue. It coincides with other demonstrations including walkouts by retail workers at a Brooklyn Center Walmart and cleaners at the downtown Minneapolis Target.

Groups collaborating on the protests include Service Employees International Union Local 26, TakeAction Minnesota, Minnesotans for a Fair Economy and other labor groups. They say the aim is getting corporations and lawmakers to raise wages for the working class.

St. Paul Police were monitoring marchers and there were some plans for civil disobedience.
