I'm still wondering what Kasich will do with all the unemployment after teachers, state workers, cops and firefighters are laid off around the state. The taxpayers are going to flip for that bill too. Unemployment can last up to 2 years. John just wants to create jobs the good ole boy way, I guess. His way or the highway. I can't believe how stupid some people really are. He, and a few others, ruined the Republican party for me. He'll be known as the "tornado governor." He'll cause a lot of destruction in office and everyone voted in after him will be picking up the pieces.
Unemployment benefits only lasted for 2 years under special extensions granted by the fed gov't for the recession. I'm worried, too, about all the people that will be laid off, when their skills are good, but they'll have to alter the type of work they do.

The ones with skills and a brain will move to right to work states and start their own business.

The rest will stay and vote in politicians who promise to extend welfare.

Russia, China, India and Brazil will soon emerge as the superpower because they know how to attract REAL corporations and not tax their brains out of existence like in Ohio.
Yeah, that's why those countries may emerge if they don't goof it up! My guess is they will goof it up and we'll remain on top, including Ohio.

Check out: http://www.buckeyeinstitute.org/teacher-salar... .

Mr. Dove makes $92,187.00 working 7.25hrs a day for 185 days/year. Prorated to a 280 hour work week he makes 142K/year (more than many Pediatric Subspecialist). He has a 1.4 million dollar pension. He will likely retire in his 50s.

No Hamilton Local does not have these high dollar teachers, which may be why they are one of the poorest performing schools in the Columbus area. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

the average salary is $57k/yr add in another$30k/yr in benefits. i find the figure too large for some teachers. elementary children taught by teachers making 100k/yr seems out of line. how did this happen? unions? school boards? don't know who to blame. it needs to change. hamilton local schools - no levy in 17 yrs should be a model. doubt if they have these high dollar teachers.

Teachers and firemen used to be heroes. Now they are thugs, and villains. We throw anyone under the bus except the rich. We are the party of faith and values.........In our Bible Jesus only rolled with the rich. Come join us we are also known as the tea party.

This is why you chimps will revert back to the old ways, and proceed working on emulating the apocalyptic hellhole of Detroit.

Kasich working to break the backs of public school teachers and feeding charter schools --- just one more privatization scam.
