    NBC Boston

    Unionized workers from across a number of industries are marching in Boston to mark the Labor Day holiday.

    Labor unions representing workers in the education, health care, building trades and hospitality industries say they'll rally and march through Copley Square on Monday evening.

    Organizers say the march recognizes the achievements of the broader labor movement that the public holiday is meant to celebrate.

    It's also meant to show support for local hotel workers negotiating a new union contract with Marriott.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
