AFL-CIO Pushes Education Tax Initiative Without Teachers Union Support

The Nevada State AFL-CIO wants to raise taxes for education by bringing a vote to the people. The labor group needs to collect 73,000 signatures to put the initiative on the ballot but they will have to do it without the help of the teachers union. The Nevada State Education Association says they can't justify spending the money needed to collect the signatures. We'll talk with AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Danny Thompson about the initiative.
