Union protesters marched outside of the Indiana Statehouse on Saturday to voice their opposition of the controversial right-to-work legislation.
The protesters said they were upset about a recent House vote to make Indiana a right-to-work state. After the rally in front of the Statehouse, the protesters went to the Super Bowl Village.
Protester Bill Mullen said the group plans to protest during the entire week of the Super Bowl Celebration.
We believe the passage of right-to-work is about to lower the state's wages. Its going to worsen labor conditions, and we think its an attack on the workers. Its going to have a devastating effect on the economy of Indiana, Mullen said. Were prepared for a long fight, and we'll be here all this week up to Super Bowl Sunday. We're prepared to occupy the Super Bowl if we need to send a message to the legislators that we will not stand for this.
Most onlookers stared in silence as the protesters walked past them. Football fan Jason Leibowitz opposed the protest.
"There's a place and a time for this," Leibowitz said. "This isn't it."
Organizers of the march said the protests will likely continue if Gov. Mitch Daniels signs the divisive bill into law next week.
