Another common sense solution to excessive union compensation. California and Ohio are on the right track. Wisconsin won their cause after a big fight with the socialist union supporters.
Finally, the taxpayers get their voice heard in government.

Let's hope the workers file an NLRB complaint and the court blocks this legislation just as was done in Wisconsin.

BRILLIANT!!!

finally Ohio is another state that is telling the democrap corrupt union thugs that enough is enough ... Middle Class America is tired of paying for unions free pension plans & free lifetime healthcare which gets an exemption from obamacare!

it is unfair that union thug members feel they are entitled to freebies paid for by Middle Class Americans!!!

let them pay for their own retirement & healthcare like we have to ... and let them all take a 50% cut in pay to equal the pay scale of the Middle Class!!!

UNION NO!!!

We DO pay for our benefits and pensions. Matter of fact, Kasick & his friends at Lehman lost almost a billion of the pension money we put in.

Stop believing the crap Beck and Limbaugh spew.

Idiot from Florida. People pay health care costs out of their pensions. Repignorance is appalling. And we paid with our incomes into our pensions.

Those pieces of public union shit have stolen from the tax-payer long enough. They know it too. They admit it to friends and family when no-one is around to rat them out. They are just pissed because they can't brag about how smart they are for having so big a pension. F them in the heart.

corrupt union thugs get paid twice as much as their Private sector counterpart, unions are less productive, have more sick time off, have more vacation time, don't contribute to their base pensions, and don't pay a dime into their healthcare ... and cannot get fired for most reasons!

fact is, Middle Class America is tired of paying for union thugs entitlements! they are no better than us - even though unions think they are better than Middle Class America!

the stupdity of union members & their dumbocraps party is appalling ... you idiot! go play with your imaginary friends (odumba, bernard, and larry sinclair)!

Actually, one of the first things Adolph did when he got in power was disband all the unions and throw the leaders in jail.

If you was an actual middle class tax payer as I am you should be tired of the politicians being part time employees and giving themselves big raises and lifetime benefits for a few years service. And not blame it on the typical public union worker making a whole 15 - 20$ dollars an hour. You should also educate yourself as we union public employees are the lowest paid of most state workers, we also pay into our retirement, we also pay part of insurance, and receive vacations as allmost all full time employees in the country do.

No. What really has happened is corporations have bought and paid for a dozen or so radical governors to do their bidding for them. They will gut the unions first and then they will come after you. Go look up the word oligarchy. You are supporting your own demise, friend. Ignorance prevails in your case. They are counting on that strategy to fully take over the country. They've already bought and paid for the government. You are next.

Hitler was a labor leader. The union he led was the Nationalist Socialist Workers Party(NAZI). The first thing the Nazis did was outlaw private ownership of guns. They also took control of the educational system, created the national youth corps, took over medical care, manipulated the news media ------ This is the same agenda that obama is following.

Why is the country broke?? A friend of a friend in Chicago is making $8,100 per month pension after 30 years as a glorified security guard. Honest. I will laugh when all this pensions go belly-up and money stops.
