  • Truthout’s Mike Ludwig reports for us from Ohio where voters will be deciding whether to veto a bill which could decimate workers in one of the strongest remaining union states.  Ludwig found a historic community organizing effort, facing off against record amounts of campaign contributions from increasingly faceless corporate donors.
