Here are some pictures of the day in Chicago:
|Thousands mustered on the UIC quad on a perfect spring day.|
Buses brought participants from neighborhoods throughout the city.

|The ARISE Chicago contingent joins the march. (The top of the|
Willis Tower -- near the march destination -- can be seen in the distance.)
|The march on Jackson was massive and joyous.|
|It was exciting to see the #Fightfor15 signs against the backdrop of the|
Chicago Board of Trade at LaSalle and Jackson - "headquarters" of the
Occupy Chicago protests several years ago.
|Fittingly, the closing rally took place alongside the McDonald's in the|
courtyard next to the Chicago Board of Trade at LaSalle and Jackson.
