    The story goes like this: Ohio Republicans took a page from Wisconsin’s book and rammed through SB 5, a bill that strips most collective bargaining rights and the right to strike from public employees.

    But in Ohio, they have this law. You can put a referendum on the ballot to overturn a bill if you get the required signatures. This stops the bill from going into effect. Unions and progressive groups collected far more signatures than they needed to repeal SB 5, almost 1.3 million in all, getting it on the November ballot. And polls showed them headed to victory, with SB 5 slated to go down by 20 points.

    Now, after all that, with Ohio Republicans on the precipice of spending all that political capital with nothing to show for it but lowered approval ratings, now Gov. John Kasich and the legislature wants to make a deal.

    It is NOT the governments place to tell a business owner how to run his or her business. If you as the worker don't like it, don't work there. "A government that is big enough to do anything for people is also big enough to take away all of our freedoms"(Jefferson).

    If you as the employee don't like the way someone runs there business within a free society--- then you can take your skills to another business, that will treat you better. What happen to freedom?:eusa_eh::eusa_eh:

    I thought we were talking about Unions... Is this the way it works? I refute you and then you change the subject? I mean... I don't mind a debate, but if we are going debate, I need to know the rules of engagement.

    Let me ask you something... IF business(obviously, I am talking about BIG Businesses, not small ones) and their practices are causing harm to the country and it's citizens, does the government have the right to curtail Business' anti American practices?

    The government has a right to stop a business that works against the interest of the nation(treason or sedation). Sure it has the right, but if the business is just hiring who they feel is the most merited(skilled) people that can make the most money, I see nothing wrong with it.

    Todays businesses are forced to hire someone for any reason, even through they likely will lose a great amount of money a productivity for doing so.

    Why should a business(can be auto shops, corporations or police, ect) be forced to hire people that generally can't pass there standards(test, or anything within a timely manner) most of the time anyways. Then these people think they're entailed to it. Seriously, a business should be able to work within the market place as long as it is not doing things that are treasonous.

    When are you leftists going to get it through your THICK SKULLS that the vast majority of states are teetering on BANKRUPTCY, and the public employee labor unions need to suck it up and make some drastic concessions or they will all LOSE THEIR JOBS!

    Sorry, leftists, but printing more money and borrowing more money from other countries IS NOT FIXING THE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS IN THIS COUNTRY.
