    Budget problems are forcing state governors across the US to propose drastic measures to balance the books.

    In the state of Wisconsin, roughly 100,000 people turned up for a fifth straight day of protests.

    Public sector workers accuse the state's Republican governor of using the crisis as a reason to attack their union rights.
