SAN FRANCISCO — At San Francisco International Airport, over 30 people were arrested after temporarily shutting down all traffic in and out of a domestic airline terminal.
The protesters were airline catering workers demanding higher wages and better health care coverage.
Their job is to serve tired and hungry passengers at the San Francisco airport.
But last Friday, 31 airline catering workers showed that even those in the service industry could lose their patience too.
They sat in the middle of a road outside the American Airlines terminal at SFO to draw attention to their fight for better wages and benefits.
The police immediately told the protesters that this was an act of civil disobedience, which prompted their arrests.
