Hundreds gather in Milwaukee to kick off Laborfest

By Todd Hicks. CREATED Sep 1, 2014

MILWAUKEE - Hundreds took to the street Monday for Milwaukee's annual Labor Day parade.

Marchers started at Zeidler Square mid-morning and walked more than a mile to kick off Laborfest on the Summerfest grounds.
 
Union members like Sue Silverstein said she was here to show support for the pro-labor movement.
 
"This is our day, this is the only day that we have to celebrate unions," she said.
 
Organizers said representatives from more than 100 unions were present.
