The stakes are high for labour groups because more than a third of U.S. public employees, including teachers. Thousands of off-duty police officers and deputies joined protests against Gov. Scott Walker's budget bill. Holding signs demonstrators marched around the Capitol.

The large crowds in Wisconsin are even more impressive considering the fact that the Wisconsin capitol protests deal with only a state issue. The Wisconsin protesters are doing more to produce massive crowds to receive the extensive national attention.
