FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- The annual Labor Day picnic took place today at Headwaters Park and thousands of people showed up for a variety of different reasons.
The picnic is an interesting cross-section of society, with some showing up to support labor unions, campaign, or just a free lunch. For the past several years, about 7,000 people have attended the annual event.
"We want people to see what solidarity feels like, looks like, and even tastes like," says Tom Lewandowski from the Central Labor Council. " When folks all join together and make something like this, it's pretty remarkable."
When asked about Indiana's Right To Work debate, Lewandowski said he'd like to see the discussion change to be about people having more of a voice in the economy.
