Ohio Legislature Approves Collective Bargain Limits

Wisconsin can’t claim all the union drama for itself. The Ohio House approved the controversial collective bargaining bill after it was sent back to the Senate on Wednesday. The law, which affects some 350,000 public workers, passed by a 17-16 vote and will be signed into law by the end of the week by Gov. John Kasich. Protesters called out chants like “Shame on you!” to legislators. “Senate Bill 5 makes me feel like I did something wrong by becoming a public employee,” a corrections officer told the Columbus Dispatch. “Now we are being blamed for a budget gone bad.”
