Wagner briefly speaks with union workers rallying against him

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner dropped by an anti-Wagner rally. 

The rally organized by union workers was held Thursday on the steps of the Capitol, in front of Wagner's office. 

Wagner didn't try to hide. He told the workers that unions don't know him. He noted that his company contributed to 150 nonprofits last year and he personally kept a York charter school afloat. 

However, protestors said they know Wagner pushes legislation they don't like. 

"Wagner does not believe in the union. He does not believe there's a need for a union. He doesn't believe there's a need to have a fair contract," said Tisheia Frazier, of Philadelphia. 

After the five minute encounter, Wagner got a reluctant handshake. A vote will be much harder to get in November.
