Photographer Brian Chilson passes this along: Magaly Licolli (right) and other members of the Northwest Arkansas Workers Justice Center are protesting on the steps of the Capitol for better working conditions at poultry plants and to "stop wage theft." Licolli said that "due to pressure from the poultry industry, no one wants to sponsor a bill for us."
