What’s happening in Wisconsin, is happening in Ohio too. From Huff Post:
Ohio Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) says he expects the state’s Republican-controlled House to pass a bill that would bar all public workers from striking and limit the bargaining rights of their unions.
The measure would limit the bargaining rights of roughly 350,000 teachers, firefighters, police officers and other public employees. They wouldn’t be able to negotiate health care benefits or certain working conditions.
It’s basically a concerted effort by Republicans to break apart the Dems support base.
