Police ticket protesters on Mag Mile

Police ticketed nearly two dozen protesters who were part of a group that disrupted holiday shopping on the Magnificent Mile Saturday.

The “Workers’ Organizing Committee of Chicago” marched down Michigan Avenue, demanding better pay for low-income food and retail workers.

Police cited the 21 people for blocking busy intersections.

It’s the same group that organized striking workers at several Wal-Marts on Black Friday last month.
