Thanks to a reader for sending this to us. We were going to rewrite it but he did such a good job there was no point and it saves us the time. Thanks, J.
Remember the Healthy Families Act? Well say hello to The Ohio Healthy Families Act.This a a doubly douchy move. For one thing, Ohio apparently “ranks 47 out of the 50 states” in regard to job creation and if OHFA succeeds we’ll be the only state to mandate paid sick leave…It’s not a good idea, it’s a great idea [insert sarcasm]. I say apparently as I am not familiar with this statistic and have just referenced ballotpedia. This statistic generally does not concern me as I have worked hard to earn an advanced degree in engineering at a reputable university so that I will always have a well paying, respectable occupation. Who would have thought hard work could pay off?
And as for the double-down in douchiness, this will likely make the ballot in the fall. Apparently there are 2.2 million Ohioans without paid sick leave. What’s that, is this a move to draw democratic (read stupid) voters in the fall? Yes, yes in fact it is.
“Gov. Ted Strickland gave up seeking a compromise tonight to keep the issue off the Nov. 4 ballot, setting the stage for an expensive and bitter fight. The governor so far has refused to say whether he will oppose or campaign against the issue.”
“Strickland had been talking with business leaders and the Service Employees International Union to craft a sick-days law that both sides could accept, arguing that a nasty and high-profile campaign this fall would paint Ohio as an unfriendly state for business.”
I love how democrats like to call their position on issue’s the “compromise” position. I fail to see how any law mandating paid sick-days could be misconstrued as a compromise. Thanks for being a pussy liberal Ted. Seriously though, f*ck you!
As a side note, I’m beginning to despise people in general. I may require euthanasia in the fall [insert sarcasm]. A friend would do it for a friend right? Well, at least Comrade Obama will buy us hybrids
