As always, the Milwaukee County Labor Council AFL-CIO goes all out in celebration of its favorite holiday, Labor Day, staging their parade through downtown Milwaukee at 11 a.m. and hosting a family-oriented gathering at the Summerfest grounds from noon to 5 p.m. With the election in full swing, there should be plenty of political chatter this year.  Last-minute addition Barack Obama is scheduled to close out the day with a 6 p.m. speech at the Marcus Amphitheater. 

Poll

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele has the power to appoint a commissioner to privatize primarily black and Latino Milwaukee Public Schools in a turnaround district. Will this privatization plan improve student performance?
