Darold Johnson, director of legislation and political action for the Ohio Federal of Teachers, said some rumors surrounding the bill stem from the sweeping power the bill would give to management.
One rumor floating in teachers' circles is that SB 5 would force them to pay out of pocket for substitute teachers, although the bill contains no such requirement.
"Anything's possible," Johnson said. "You hear so many different rumors on so many different days."
If the fool would just read the bill, he'd know what was in it so he would stop the fearmongering. He won't do that because he wants union members to be afraid.
