City of Las Vegas officials say union employee wages are too high and they have the numbers to prove it.

A new personnel cost analysis from the city shows that in some cases wages for city employees are as much as 50% higher than comparable jobs elsewhere.

The Las Vegas City Employees Union, the city's largest labor union, says the numbers don't add up.

We talk with City Manager, Betsy Fretwell about the analysis and how it impacts future budget negotiations.
