After threats of painful cuts, Detroit to protect pensions

  • Aired: 04/17/2014
  • 06:15
  • Rating: NR
When Detroit declared bankruptcy, the pensions of city workers faced deep pension cuts — some as high as 34 percent. After protests, these cuts have been scaled back and Detroit is drawing closer to a deal on how to protect against such drastic pension reductions. Judy Woodruff gets the story from Christy McDonald of Detroit Public Television.
