Wisconsin has a new law, but future of unions still a hot issue

A day after Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed an act that strips collective-bargaining rights from public employee unions, protesters in the state capital made clear that they don't think the fight is over.
Thousands of union members and labor supporters rallied in the state capital, Madison, determined to continue opposing the new law.
In fact, the epic political battle in Wisconsin appears to have only accelerated, not decided, a national debate on the role of labor unions for public-sector workers.
