The three were part of some 150 protestors participating throughout the day in a rally to raise the minimum wage from the current $7.25 to over 10 dollars, preferably fifteen dollars, said Kyndall Mason, 34, who came to Pittsburgh from Portland, Ore., to help organize. The group started in McDonald's in East Liberty in the morning, then moved throughout the East End, stopping at Target, Bakery Square, CMU, and finally UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland. The protests marked the four-year anniversary of the last time minimum wage was raised at the federal level on July 24, 2009, when it rose from $6.55 to $7.25 an hour. 'Nobody can survive off that when gas is $3.40, basically you're working an hour to put two gallons in your car. Can't afford child care, health care. People can't live,' said Glenn Grayson, Jr., 27, of the Hill District.
