Fight for $15 Protest and Arrests

A couple weeks ago, I was out photographing a Fight for $15 strike at the start of their National Day of Disruption, where workers from the Fight for $15 union, along with SEIU, protested across the country with groups being arrested in multiple cities, often for failure to disperse.
I was there photographing a subject's story. Things were a little slow on that part and once things escalated, I switched to the other story at hand as the person I was photographing stood still watching the police arrest protestors seated in the street.

My goal is always to inform, and as such, I tweeted and Instagrammed pictures as the event happened. As I was working on someone's story, I didn't actually pack my laptop on me, something I regretted after - might have been handy to send the photos off.

Nothing worse than photographs you like never seeing the light of day, so here's the story of the morning protest in Los Angeles:
