Workers set to march to State House
Jobs with Justice is holding its national conference in Rhode Island, but it's not all cheese plates at the convention center.
The group of workers' rights advocates is also marching alongside Working RI to the State House today to rally for what it calls "a vision of Rhode Island that will protect and promote the dignity of every Rhode Islander."
Joining the rally will be the secretary and treasurer of the state AFL/CIO, George Nee; the executive director of the National Jobs with Justice Sarita Gupta, and a handful of local advocates.
The group is set to leave from the Westin Ballroom at 4 p.m. and speak at the State House Lawn at 5 p.m.
