Striking nurses employ picket line violence

The strike continues for nurses in eastern Kentucky against Appalachian Regional Healthcare. Both sides have attempted to find common ground but the nurse's chief negotiator says no significant movement has been made yet.

The strike has been tough for those walking the picket line as well as those who cross it. One employee who has chosen to cross the picket line to take care of patients discovered her tires slashed and her name written on a "wall of shame" posted outside the hospital.

The nurse's have been on strike since October 1.
