We Are Ohio opens Struthers office Tuesday

Published: Mon, August 29, 2011 @ 12:04 p.m.

STRUTHERS — We Are Ohio, the organization urging a “no” vote on Issue 2 to repeal SB5, will have a grand opening of a local office at 11 a.m. Tuesday. The office is located at 520 Youngstown-Poland Road in Struthers.

SB5 restricts some collective-bargaining rights for public employees. A measure to repeal the law will be on the Nov. 8 ballot.

Those at the Struthers office will organize local door-to-door canvasses and make telephone calls urging voters to vote no on Issue 2.

With "We Are Wisconsin" getting neutered at the ballot box by the voters of that state, the national unions now have more money to pour into Ohio -- a crucial swing state for the dems. "We Are Ohio" will discover the same thing their badger union buds did: "We The People" have wearied of your childish tantrums. Suggested reading? http://thirdbasepolitics.blogspot.com...

I'm looking forward to these folks showing up at my house in their door-to-door canvass. I'll just refer them to my 48 year old RETIRED neighbor a couple of doors up, sauntering around with his hands in his pockets, nothing to do. How do they expect me to support a system where I am paying for his retirement and gold-plated health care for longer than I will be alive?

Typical, come to youngstown, to make themselves look good in front of all their union buddies. They know they have the brainless, clueless of youngsstown to pump full of the bs of theirs. Lets go people vote yes on sb5 and save the hard working people of Ohio. Get rid of the socialist and make them do an honest days work for an honest day pay.

Public workers have ALWAYS paid into their retirement. It is written and has been written into the Ohio revised code. Currently it is 10%. It has been 10% for some time when the state of Ohio increased it from 9.3%. Those elected officials and and Adminstration has it that they pay nothing. SB5 will not cover that, just those in the trenches. So you link is lies for those supporting SB5. Thats for spreading the lies that the rest of Ohio will see and understand.
SB5 does away with fairness in Ohio for public workers and soon for the private sector, bet on that!
Collective begging will go like this. Your in a car accident and the other party is at fualt. you go and get an estimate of $5,000 dollars. the other party says they will give you $50. you say no way, lets let a judge decide. The party you were in the accident with is the judge. He/She looks at your "offer/ claim" and his/her. He/She decides to go with the $50 claim and their is nothing you can do about it. That is Hitler Kasick's idea of collective begging in Ohio.
Currently if an impass like this occurs, a third nuetral party that is paid half by the union and the school board/ city/ county pay the other half.
Kasick and Sb5 basicly says we the public cannot trust those we elect into office. He is partly right We Ohioans don't trust a carpetbagger like him and will show him this November the SB% and any other laws like it, are bad for you, me and dupree!

@save your: Facts you wish did not exist does not make them "lies." btw -- Your resorting to name-calling in lieu of an attempt to refute those facts is called "embarrassing." Nonetheless, best of luck to you.

The only people WE ARE CARRYING are those elected people in COLUMBUS and WASHINGTON DC with the bennies the have; Free healthcare which cost me around 28% a month; huge retirement after only two, four or six half years of work. Me, I have to work 35 years or age sixty now. I don't have a problem with that. Kasick getting free healhtcare and making 100,000+ a year I do and so should you! see try paying that percentage which my is based on salary, not the cost of insurance, (IT FACT, SORRY FOR TELLING THE TRUTH) I would be willing to me you to prove that point so you are imformed with the truth, not some greedy pro-business rapist of the middle class like Kasick.

They are not Ohio, because I'm an Ohioan and I'm 100% S.B. 5.

I loathe how people speak as if everyone must agree with them or their opinion is invalid.

you are 1 million percent correct. Ohio, just like other right to work states, is on the fast track to the bottom. Wages will fall, bennies will drop, and the middle class will dry up and be gone. Everyone wants to attack teachers. However, how many know a teacher starting out in most districts (if not all) in the tri-county area with a family of four qualify for free and/or free lunch for the first 5 to 7 years of employee. Sb5 will only lengthen that time to for ever!
Another fact Sb5'ers don't want out there

"Public workers have ALWAYS paid into their retirement. It is written and has been written into the Ohio revised code. Currently it is 10%."

That is only a half truth. Their is an employee's share to be paid into retirement, SB 5 banned employers paying the employee's share also.

Please know the law before you speak.
