Unions Continue to Fight in Detroit
A rally was held in the downtown Detroit area where several hundred janitors and members of the Service Employees International Union marched to emphasize their disapproval of nonunion businesses. According to reports from People's Weekly World, the Master Janitorial Contract, covering 1,500 employees in the Detroit metro area, is set to expire June 30.

Union members argue that this is far to low to make ends meet and the bottom wage should be raised so standards don't fall for the industry as a whole.
