DENVER -- It's being called a "day of disruption," the latest push in the fight for a $15 minimum wage.

Protests are planned across the country Tuesday by fast food, home care and hospital workers, airport employees, and even Uber drivers.

The protests are expected to be larger than previous ones and involve workers in more than two dozen cities, including Denver.

Voters this month in Colorado approved raising the minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2020. But workers say that is still not enough for a family to live on.

Part of the protest in Denver will include workers at Denver International Airport. They plan to disrupt travel on the RTD A Line about noon.

They will begin their protest at the airport, then jump on the train and head to Union Station.

Organizers claim the fight for $15 an hour has led to wage hikes for 22 million workers.
