[Video] CBS Evening News - Recession Pressure on Teachers' Union

A 5 minute video via CBS Evening News on the impact the states' troubles are having on unions, specifically teachers.  Recall despite the public sector workforce being a fraction of the private workforce, union memberships in the public sector has actually surpassed that of the much larger private sector.   Obviously the larger question is not "unions, bad or good?" but a question of aligning the costs of the public sector, especially benefits, back in line with the traumatic changes in the private sector - i.e. conversion from pensions to 401ks, major cost increases in healthcare, etc.
