Union protestors continue march at WI capitol


Madison, WI (KWWL) -- The ongoing fight over union rights for public workers raged on for the twelfth straight day in Madison, Wisconsin, where thousands of protesters marched around the capitol building.

Public workers have been protesting a Republican-authored bill that would limit their bargaining rights. Union members see it as an attack on the middle class.

They are marching outside and inside the capitol building beating drums, chanting, "this is what democracy looks like."

Union members from Eastern Iowa made the trip to Madison on Saturday, as an act of solidarity.
