Is Ohio next on right-to-work battlefront?

Dec 12, 2012 Full story: WKYC-TV 183

As neighboring Michigan became the 24th state Tuesday to enact laws that prohibit agreements requiring workers to join a union or pay dues, Ohio groups that support the laws say the Buckeye State has to follow suit or watch jobs leave.

The Republicans will have to be very careful about how they handle such a move.
Michigan was very smart, they kept their plans close to the chest, included an appropriation in the bill so it cannot be repealed, and were prepared to move it very quickly from House to Senate on the same day before the unions could muster their forces and organize protests. They learned well from Wisconsin's troubles.
The unions need to be lulled into believeing Ohio won't try anything.

Kasich's approval rating is on the rise. He's not going to mess with RTW. After his reelection, then we will see plans for that. If it's not broke, don't fix it. Any interaction with unions of any kind is trouble for the Governor. We will see it, but it takes time.

I agree with most everything you said. I think Kasich intends to run for president, the question is when.
If he runs for re-election in 2014, he will not finish his term as governor. The timing of RTW would be critical. If he tries it and wins he's golden for conservatives. If it somehow fails, he's toast.

You know Ford is the only ones who had a union that saw the whole picture back when GM and Chrysler went broke...At least Ford got smart and told Obozo to shove it.I buy Fords over any other company just on that fact..

I gave up on US made vehicles. As a truck driver, I've had plenty of experience delivering to those auto plants and took note of their worthless union attitude. The quality of their work is evident of their outlook on work.

Now I drive a Toyota and I love it. 100,000 mile seven year bumper to bumper warranty. They are not only more reliable, but they hold their value much better than American cars.

That is the first sensible thing you have posted in months.

RTW states have lower unemployment than union states. They have more jobs available although some of those jobs don't pay what they do in union states. But I look at it this way: I would rather have lower paying jobs available than no jobs at all.

Our company lost customer after customer because of unions and state expenses such as workman's compensation. If we were a RTW state the last ten years or so with leadership like Kasich, I would bet many of those companies would still be here. But no. They left to go south or out of the country altogether just to escape expenses like unions.

Some people still don't get it. If you want to catch a mouse, you have to use bait such as cheese. No company wants to be in a state where they have massive debt and unions that will eat away at company profit.

Well not anymore. Once upon a time, but then the unions got greedy and started making so many unreasonable demands that businesses had to move to free themselves. We certainly do not have to put up with abuse and thuggery because of something that happened 60 years ago.
These days fair wages, benefits, vacations, etc are universal, many guaranteed by law. Unions are no longer necessary.

What I see is a person with the writing abilities of a fourth grader. Perhaps if you paid attention in school, not only would you be able to write a coherent response, but you wouldn't need a union to guarantee you maximum wages for cleaning toilets.

Three to four dollars is too much to pay a person like you with such atrocious writing and punctuation abilities. I don't know what you do for a living, but shouldn't be making two dollars per hour. You're too stupid to make any amount of money.

Yes!! hide the governing plans from the people. That is the way to do it. Ohio is already preparing for that move.

Exactly. I asked repeatedly how long we are indebted to unions because of their advancements many years ago? 20 years? 50 years? 100 years? How long do we patronize unions for the benefits they first introduced?

While unions were losing ground in the US, they never backed off. They only wanted more. People became disgusted with them once they realized those unions chased our jobs to China and India. They even closed down Hostess. They are bankrupting states.
