15 Students, Janitors Arrested in Pay Protest

From Staff and Wire Reports

Fifteen students and janitors were arrested Friday during a protest near UC San Diego in support of the janitors' demand for better pay and benefits.

Ten men and five women were arrested without incident after refusing to disperse from a busy intersection adjacent to the La Jolla campus, a police spokesman said. The janitors work for a company that cleans buildings at the university.

"I came here for justice and to make a difference," said student Rene Gube as he was handcuffed.
