Thirty-nine people were arrested Tuesday morning on Grand River Avenue during a protest for wage increases for minimum wage workers, according to Detroit Police, who said the incident appeared to be correlated with several other protests around the nation.

DPD Media Relations Director Michael Woody said 24 women and 15 men were arrested during the demonstration.

The local protest was planned by organizers of the Detroit 15 movement, which is seeking a $15-an-hour minimum wage and union rights for hundreds of employees who work in various industries, including fast food, retail and health care.
