Claire Doole reports from central Switzerland on a proposal that would limit the number of foreign-born residents in the country. Right-wing groups say foreign workers are keeping wages down and stifling the economy. Others say enforcing a quota would hurt Switzerland's reputation. Opinion polls say a vote on the proposal, scheduled for this weekend, will be close.
