Thom Hartmann: Don't mess with working people...

The backlash is underway against Republican Governors who attacked labor unions this year. Next month - voters in Ohio will get a chance to repeal SB-5 - the law pushed by Governor John Kasich to strip collective bargaining rights from public workers.
According to a new Quinnipiac poll - SB-5 is in big trouble with 57% of voters supporting repeal - and only 32% against it. But Governor John Kasich has it easy. While his signature legislation may suffer defeat next month - at least he'll still get to keep his job.
The same can't be said about Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker who passed similar legislation - and will likely face a recall election next year as a result. Don't mess with working people.
(Is the tide turning against all anti-collective bargaining governors? Tell us here.)
