Faith and labor leaders came together in front of the State House in Concord on Wednesday to mark May Day and call for higher wages and expanded benefits for workers in the state.

About 50 people gathered at City Plaza in front of the State House holding signs, singing songs and listening to speeches before organizers hand-delivered a letter to Gov. Chris Sununu’s office seeking the governor’s support on certain legislation, including raising the minimum wage and establishing mandatory paid family and medical leave.
