Trenton Rallies To Defend Union Workers

Union workers from across New Jersey rallied in front of the statehouse in Trenton on Friday. The event was billed as a show of solidarity for union workers in Wisconsin. But the demonstrators also had a message for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who wants public employees to contribute more to their pension and health plans. New Jersey unions say Christie should stop making them the scapegoat for the state's problems.
