ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Monday was International Worker's Day, although many call it May Day. Demonstrations over labor issues took place all across the world.


One rally happened right now at Tiguex Park in the Old Town area of Albuquerque. Members of three education groups and at least 30 local labor unions and other community organizations are participating.

Organizers say they want to highlight the good done in our community by teachers and immigrants as well as their families.

There was a similar message in Santa Fe with messages promoting immigrants' impact in the community. Hundreds attended that march.

Meanwhile, some staff and students at Albuquerque High School walked out. It was part of a 15-minute demonstration to protest school budget issues. They demanded our state's schools be fully funded with no cuts to staff.

Funding is still up in the air because the governor and lawmakers can't agree on the state budget. No word on when a special session to figure that out will be.
