Wisconsin unions rally for rights

Republican governor accused of attacking rights of unions in US state.


    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.
