Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

A big labor rally at the Vermont Statehouse Thursday marked May Day.

Hundreds of people from Vermont labor unions, environmental groups and activist organizations marched through Montpelier and demonstrated on the Statehouse lawn.

They were honoring International Workers' Day and pushing a worker-friendly political agenda, including universal health care, a livable wage and paid sick time.

Groups at the rally are also pushing for more rights for immigrants and legislation requiring bias-free policing.
