Photos: Denver Fast-Food Workers Demand $15 Per Hour Wages, Union Rights

Thanks to protests over no-indictment decisions by grand juries in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases (as well as claims that some East High students at a Wednesday rally chanted "Hit him again" after four Denver police officers were injured in a crash, one critically), another pair of demonstrations yesterday have received comparatively little attention.
