From fewer police to cuts in healthcare benefits and monthly pension checks, Detroit's workers, retirees and residents share how their lives have been changed by the largest municipal bankruptcy in history.
While tens of thousands of retired and current Detroit workers and their families face pension cuts as deep as 34%, some say they aren't sure how they'll make ends meet if such cuts are approved.
Detroit bankruptcy plan lays out 34% reduction in pension benefits for city workers, 10% cut for police and fire, as well as reductions in retiree health care, payments to banks holding debt.
Citizens of Detroit worry that the city's bankruptcy could affect pensions, healthcare, and emergency services. City officials, however, insist that services will remain open, and bills will be paid.
After decades of decline, Detroit tries to figure out how it will emerge from bankruptcy with a stronger economy including more innovative and creative companies.
