Ohioans who work in the private sector deserve congratulations for their selfless vote to help re-establish “government unions” bargaining rights.
It is rare indeed that private sector workers vote in favor of subordinating their earnings package to union worker earnings, for comparable jobs, by providing revenue through unlimited (tax increases). It is more remarkable that they are even willing to pick up the tab (“much higher immediate taxes”) for the tens of billions of dollars that the very rich Ohio union retirement fund is in the red for.
This “progressive trend” is sure to come to your state in the near future. Using the Ohio result as a model, one wonders if private sector workers everywhere will rush to embrace it. No?
Who will be first to step up.
