As we all know right now the Republican attack on unions has reached the  great state of Ohio.    Governor Lehman Brothers Kasich  is backing a bill that would eliminate collective bargaining for state employees which include  firefighters ,  police officers ,  teachers ,  first responders  and many many more.  

On this bitter cold day thousands of Ohio's tax paying citizens joined together in solidarity against HB 5 and in support of Ohio's Workers.  Although I'm not part of any union, I understand that union's are responsible for a strong and vibrant middle class so i joined them today.  The following photos are from the  Ohio Statehouse

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
