    Kevin McCorry joins us live from the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers’ meeting.  Holly Otterbein considers whether Philadelphia’s proposed contract for teachers keeps the city schools competitive in terms of attracting teaching talent.  Tom MacDonald attends today’s union rally.  Chris Satullo ponders the divide between a declining union membership and a growing number of Americans who disapprove of organized labor.  We talk with Stephen Scaturro, Director of Ocean County’s Consumer Affairs Department about an uptick in reports of scammer contractors.  And Franklin Institute Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts tells us the best place to view this week’s NASA launch–and it’s right in our backyard.
