Maybe workers in this area are finally seeing the light. Unions in this day and age are job killers. This area has been almost all pro-union for decades now...how's that worked out for us?

I agree that the driving can be bad at times. But I was on Western Reserve Road this morning at 7:40 am and there was over 1" of ice completely covering the entire road. People were driving 5 mph and still sliding without hitting the brakes. The Mahoning County Engineers office was asleep at the wheel. This was not a surprise storm that rolled in. Everyone knew last weekend that snow, cold, wind were coming. They chose not to send crews out because it's a lazy, negligent group of overpaid, underworked, irresponsible people. As I said earlier, Mahoning County employees have certainly earned their reputation.

Western Reserve road was a skating rink this morning. As usual, County workers and trucks are nowhere to be found. Some stereotypes exist for a reason...laziness.

This valley has been Democratic and pro-union for decades. Where has that got us? NOWHERE. The fact that Dave Betras leads the Democratic Party says all you need to say. An ambulance-chasing loudmouth asking people on TV to call him if they've been attached by a rabid dog. Geez.

Anti-union is not anti-worker or anti-teacher. Unions were great when they existed to protect employees from dangerous work conditions, child labor, etc. Now, they exist to protect the lazy. It's what drove GM into the ground and finally forced them to get their costs in line, and buy out all the guys making 70K a year for driving forklift and turning 6 screws an hour. Have many friends who worked part time at GM over the summers and were threatened by union guys when they worked too fast. Wow, what a concept! Unions are a joke and a disgrace to hard working people everywhere. I support the governor in his attempt to actually balance the budget by removing free rides!
