Ohio House panel OKs public worker union bill

The union protestors are going to be doing some traveling as State lawmakers are focusing on inequality in benefits for Union workers compared to non-union employees.  While most people in America have cut back, unions feel entitled to benefits while the rest of  the country suffers.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A panel of Ohio lawmakers made a bill to limit collective bargaining rights for 350,000 public workers even tougher for unions on Tuesday, as the state moved closer to Wisconsin-style restrictions.

A Republican-controlled House labor committee voted 9-6 along party lines to send the bill to the full House. Its approval of the legislation was met with chants of “Shame on you!” from the several hundred demonstrators gathered outside the hearing room.

“I don’t hear your supporters out there!” one man inside the room shouted to lawmakers.
