LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Hundreds of labor union members and others are rallying at Michigan's state Capitol to show support for public employees in Wisconsin.
The Saturday protest was part of a nationwide effort organizers called "Save the American Dream" rallies. It's supported by dozens of groups including MoveOn.org and the Service Employees International Union.
A 12th straight day of protests had begun at Wisconsin's state Capitol over a Republican bill that would strip most public workers of almost all their collective bargaining rights.
Republican Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has tried to avoid a similar showdown in his state. But unions are upset about proposals pending in the state Legislature that they say would undermine collective bargaining rights.
