...Rep. was detained by police Friday during a protest at Detroit Metro Airport where she was demonstrating for higher pay for employees who worked for Delta airlines.
...It appeared Tlaib was protesting with catering workers for Delta who were frustrated with the airline.
...Pictures of the protest were released by a member of the Unite Here group, a union that represents hotel, gaming, food service, and airline industry employees from the U.S. and Canada.
..."These workers are suffering and living under unimaginable conditions all because Delta wants to make more profits on the backs of the poor. The airline catering workers are desperate for a better quality of life and put their bodies on the line in their fight against the exorbitant corporate greed by the airlines denying them of their right to a living wage and good healthcare," Tlaib said in a statement to The Hill..
