WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A group of local construction workers expressed their dissatisfaction creatively Wednesday morning with a giant rat.

The protesters held signs and put out an inflatable rat in front of a Northwest apartment building site to draw attention to their demand for a $2 an hour wage hike.
