Update: According to a press release, more than a dozen janitors were arrested amid protests on Wednesday for civil disobedience as strikes continued downtown. More information as it becomes available.

Original Post:For those unaware, janitors across the city of Houston have been on strike for the last two weeks protesting what they believe to be unfair labor practices by many companies. As the strike continues, the ranks grow and more and more buildings in Houston are being affected. On Tuesday, a large group of the striking workers protested outside the Exxon building in downtown, hoping to catch the eye of attendees of the Houston Wildcatters Texas Energy Alliance reception being held there. Our Abrahán Garza was there with his camera.
