    This is exciting! Ohio should be next!!

    'The impact of Michigan’s decision will be felt far beyond the borders of the once-staunchly pro-union state. Even though the ranks of union workers have been dwindling across the nation, the influence of big unions is still felt from the halls of government to corporate board rooms, and their clout affects everything from the economy to the political field. But the rising number of right-to-work states could further drain that influence.

    "It’s a union story today, and a much broader economic story tomorrow,” said Harley Shaiken, a professor at UC Berkeley and an expert on union issues. '

    LET'S ROLL

    Is Ohio next on right-to-work battlefront?

    A group called Ohioans for Workplace Freedom is gathering signatures to put the issue on the fall ballot. It needs 385,253.

    “Indiana has done this. Michigan will. What choice will Ohio have?” tea party activist Chris Littleton, of West Chester, told the Toledo Blade this week. “This is economic jet fuel for job creation, wage growth and a vibrant Ohio economy. If two border states do this, how can Ohio afford not to do this?”

    The right-to-work push by NaziCons will likely backfire. Come on 2014...

    Ohio will easily pass right to work this fall.

    It may, but I foresee widespread buyer's remorse by 2014 - and especially by 2016.

    I honestly would love to understand why you think right-to-work is so amazing. In an economy where employers already have the vast advantage over employees, how is giving employers more power to treat workers poorly a step up?

    Unions have run entire industries out of America. The world has changed. Unions need to modernize and compete like anyone else.
