I have to be quick about this and will have more to say later, but members of public sector unions, especially academic/teaching public sector unions, owe a gigantic show of gratitude to the overwhelming percentage of OH voters who voted yesterday to repeal SB5.
On today’s Washington Post “The Answer Sheet” blog, Valerie Strauss explains the implications of yesterday’s vote for teachers and teachers’ unions nationwide. Her point isn’t difficult to generalize to us.
Read it. Then raise a toast to every OH voter you know. This is what democracy looks like.
