Reason Writers on TV: Shikha Dalmia on Unions Bankrupting Detroit

Dalmia appeared on Fox Business to discuss how the Michigan bailout of Detroit only delays the inevitable. She suggests the city council rewrite contracts with union employees in order to lower its finical burden and deflate its ballooning deficit.
