Palin: Wis. gov doing the right thing with unions

Sarah Palin said Saturday that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is doing the right thing by demanding concessions from public employee unions.

She made her remarks during a speech at a tea party rally outside the Wisconsin state capitol.

The potential Republican presidential candidate said Walker is trying to save public workers' jobs.

Last month, the governor signed a law that strips public workers of nearly all their collective bargaining rights.

A number of labor supporters were also there, and tried to drown out Palin with their chanting.
