OHIO Working To Repeal Senate Bill 5 ( yes, THE AntiUnionBill )
Senate Bill 5 is worse than the Wisconsin Law, it actually will effect the Rights of Workers of the whole State, more than 380,000 workers. This includes Teachers, Police and Fire and many others. Many of the Cities, Towns, and Communities are also working to pass Legislation against this Draconian Law that Kasich is attempting to ram through to aid his Corporate Buddies...If you live in Cleveland or Ohio please see this and find out where to sign the Petition. ( We need 200,000 signatures).
** For many months Kasich has been pleading his case all over the State, that this wretched law is NEEDED due to the Huge Deficit, but this story from the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Blogger Plunderburd shows that the Deficit that he has whined about is not really accurate......
*** Do read this link to Public Service Workers Blog and it explains how since Kasich has taken office Ohio has lost over 22,000 Public Service jobs and he plans to cut more than 55,000 more. SB5 is about jobs and will effect jobs, and in the end won't save the state money....

P.S. Senate Bill 5 is an attack on the middle class and it hurts worker rights and worker safety. It takes away collective bargaining rights and rolls back 28 years of progress for working families. Will you help protect Ohio's middle class by signing the petition today?
