Janesville teachers and other public union members from Rock County make their voices heard in Madison.


Joining the tens-of-thousands, chanting and marching around the Capitol Saturday, a teacher from Jefferson Elementary School. She remarked how she loved her job, but still needed to provide for her family. A special education teacher remarked how there has been a lot of teacher bashing recently, and it was nice to see so many turning out in support. A Rock County Highway Department worker said he was there along with many co-workers to fight for their rights.


Many had returned for several days to protest.
