Crowds showing their support of unions Tuesday outside the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
A new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows the public strongly supports employee bargaining rights. In the survey, 61% oppose a law in their state similar to one being considered in Wisconsin, compared with 33% who favor it.
The collective bargaining power issue has eyed for the chopping block in multiple states, courtesy of the GOP, to help ease money woes. These laws would limit the power of government employee unions to bargain over benefits and work rules.
Wisconsin is the first state to consider such a bill.
