Victoria Gutierrez, a nurse at Madison's Meriter Hospital and member of Service Employee International Union (SEIU), and her son, Julian Miranda, join thousands of firefighters, teachers, public employees and pro-union citizens for a solidarity rally outside the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison, Wis., on June 14, 2011. The rally is part of continued public protest against efforts by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican-controlled legislature to enact measures that negatively impact collecting bargaining rights for union workers and the benefits of public employees. In addition, state funding and support is being cut from the state budget for many programs related to education, healthcare and senior care. (Photo by Jeff Miller for SEIU)
