BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) - Baton Rouge residents gathered on the steps of the State Capitol to voice their concerns about issues occuring  in Wisconsin.

Everyone there was there in support of the unions, dressed in red and white in support of Wisconsin state labor unions; these unions range from workers to teachers unions.
