After a rough year for workers that saw Gov. Walker's unprecedented rollback of state workers' collective-bargaining rights, union members could use a little bit of celebrating. They'll gather today at the Summerfest grounds for a day of family-friendly entertainment that includes music, dancing, pro-wrestling demonstrations, bingo, magic shows and plenty of festival food. Come show solidarity.
