Local Unions to Protest Spending Cuts
As Congress continues to work on an agreement to avoid mandatory spending cuts, local union leaders are holding a protest Wednesday in Rochester.
The cuts will affect the military homeland security and FEMA. However Wednesday's protest will focus on the social cuts to things like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, food stamps and education.
They're asking Congress to instead close tax loopholes.
The protest is at the New York State United Teachers offices on North Union Street at 3:30 pm.
