Public Sector Unions Take It On The Chin

    In Ohio, the unions and their Democrat allies have, via the petition process, put the state’s recently enacted public sector collective barganing reform law (SB5) up for a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ vote in November.

    A ‘yes’ vote will ratify SB5 and its provisions can start to be enforced.

    A ‘no’ vote repeals SB5, and it’s back to the drawing borad.

    And for those who may not know, SB5 went further in reforming the runaway public sector unions than what Scott Walker did in Wisconsin.

    So you may ask, if that is so, why did Wisconsin get more media attention than Ohio. Answer: Because Wisconsin is the spiritual home of progressive. The symbolism of the unions losing there is a back-breaker for the Left.

    “The public sector unions aren’t fighting a party; they are fighting arithmetic. Sooner or later, numbers win.”

    To quote Ed Driscoll on another subject, “[It] has been on the receiving end of most of the blows in recent years, as it increasingly loses its fight with reality, who tends to be a rather unmerciful sparring partner.”
