Ohio Gov. Candidate John Kasich Hates Unions
By Mike Hall
John Kasich, the Wall Street executive?as he keeps reminding everyone?running for Ohio governor has made a career of hating and baiting unions. A brand-new video details his deep disdain for unions and workers. In it, Kasich (R) rants that giving workers a voice through unions ?threatens our American values.?
That?s quite a different track record from Gov. Ted Strickland, the son of a steelworker who supports workers and their unions and signed a law to give Ohioans stronger collective bargaining rights.
Narrated by an Ohio worker speaking ?from one working stiff to another,? the video demonstrates the job-killing and anti-union record of the former U.S. House member, who voted against good wages and voted to outsource jobs in favor of union-busting ?right-to-work? for less laws. As the narrator succinctly puts it, Kasich has a long record of ?screwing workers.?
How much does Kasich hate unions? He told the Ashtabula Star Beacon:
We need to break the back of organized labor in schools.
A former Ohio teacher says Kasich:
wants to make sure teachers don?t have a voice at work.
What about his Wall Street/Lehman Brothers connections? As a Buckeye senior notes:
He was constantly trying to get Lehman Brothers’ business with our state pensions and when Lehman Brothers crashed, our pensions lost $480 million.
These are just some of the highlights. Click here to see the full video.
