INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The message of a rally in downtown Indianapolis was clear on Wednesday night.

Volunteers with the Jobs for Justice campaign demanded a higher minimum wage for retail workers.

They were calling for $15 an hour for work that, they say, makes the holiday shopping season possible.

“We’re a state surrounded by other states all around us who have a higher minimum wage than we have and I don’t think it’s right for Indiana to be that way. I think we deserve better,”  said John Triplett with central Indiana Jobs for Justice.

The campaign is also calling for more full time positions for retail and hospitality workers.
