COLONIE - The annual Solidarity Labor Day Picnic was held Monday afternoon in Colonie.
The picnic is one of many held across the country on Labor Day. They're held as reminders of the importance of unions.
Organizers say unions have been demonized in recent years.
A generation ago, 20 percent of the U.S. workforce was unionized. Now, that number is about 11 percent.
