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.

@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.

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.

@SAVEOURCOUNTRY:

"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.
