If anyone needs a union, it's these overworked, underpaid, (mostly) women.

Oh please Bubba...It is a slow Saturday morning so edumacate me on how paying union dues to support democratic political hacks protects the young and sick? That's as silly as saying teachers unions support better student education!

I don't want some overpaid union hack taking care of me that is more concerned with his pension than my welfare.

The union needs to be ousted. They are a plague on society this day and age. Not good for anyone except their officers and bosses who do no work, just jack their jaws and take the workers hard earned cash.
Good going Gov. Stand up to the worthless big mouths, with their threats and strong arm tactics. We need them gone for good!

The author of your article uses a very powerful lie to distort the truth. You claim the Executive Order "allowed" the home Care workers to join. That is FALSE. The Executive order FORCED private businesses to pay Union Dues to SEIU. In case you did not know SEIU is a quasi communist group that is merely a front for Socialist and (D) agendas. They are anathema to every thing I believe in about freedom.

I was a home health care worker and business man. I shut the business down over Strickland's underhanded payback for the SEIU support. Why should private businesses pay Union dues? Until then I supported his leadership as governor and would have helped reelect him. After SEIU was allowed to steal my money, nice and legal, I did EVERYTHING in my power to see Strickland defeated. Governor Kasich, you better take a lesson from this and not fall into the trap of Unions.

So, were either of your parents or grandparents union members? Unions built the middle-class in the 20th century and made our nation what it WAS. Now corporate interests and greed are dismantling the orgs put in place to protect average Joes from wankers like Kasich and big business. Sadly, those same Joes are the ones that voted him in.
Republicans are trying to kill off the poor, one dismantling at a time.
Thankfully, thank you God and praise allah, Unions and Demoncrats are going the way of the dinosaur. It just is taking too long, and is hurting the economy as a result.

Demoncrats have lied for 100 years that they are the party of the poor, when in actuality, they are the party that relies upon enslaving the poor. Think about it: what would happen to their constituency if those individuals were actually moving up the ladder?

They lie to your face, pretend to be concerned, stoke the fires of envy and greed, then sit back and let the populace riot.

Wake up. It's a new time in this country. Good bye union thugs, good bye demoncrat liars. It's the era of the individual, self determination is going to make its way back into America.

It's a new day. Wake up. Put your own pants on. Wipe your own arse.

Kasich is showing true promise even before he takes office. Keep up the good work, Governor-elect. Those arrogant and selfish unions need someone to take them on.

John Kasich, thank you!

SEIU is the most dangerous union (socialist agenda) in America. When you peel back and look at them you see they are totally socialists demanding wealth redistribution.
The former head of SEIU, Andy Stern has been at the Whitehouse 22+ in less than 2 years. His union gave Obama tens of millions of campaign funds to expand their socialist agenda.
Strickland also benefited from the unions and FAILED>
Forcing home healthcare workers to join a union WILL NOT provide better healthcare. It will protect those that do not do their jobs and those workers will have less money in their pocket.

Stop the forced unionization and watch Ohio get jobs going again.

This is just the beginning of what this man is going to do to Ohio. Unions are the only thing we have that will stand against the almost unlimited power of the corporations that Republicans are in bed with.

Who are the only people who formerly \ had decent working conditions and retirement plans? Union members, that's who. But Republicans, with their unlimited money from anonymous donors, have convinced working people to demonize unions, another example of susceptible people being convinced to act against their own best interests.

Mark my words: The fact that Citizens United money bought this state for John Kasich is not going to end well, and this is just one of the first clues.
