Governor Brown's Deal with Prison Guards Could Be Costly

Hosted by

Former Governor Gray Davis gave California's prison guards a 34 percent raise, twice what other state employees received. After he was recalled, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger attacked the Correctional Peace Officers Association as an example of public-worker unions with too many perks and too much power. Last year, the 30,000-member union supported current Governor Jerry Brown as Schwarzenegger's replacement, and Brown has negotiated a contract that could be costly to taxpayers. Don Thompson reports from Sacramento for the Associated Press.
