Wed., 11:19am: AFL-CIO blasts Kasich speech

February 20, 2013
Tribune Chronicle | TribToday.com

LIMA Gov. John Kasich's speech ``glossed over some significant problems with Ohio's economic recovery,'' Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga announced in a written statement.

Burga said a 6.7 percent unemployment rate is unacceptably high.

He blamed layoffs in the public sector triggered by ``Kasich's misguided spending priorities.'' Burga added that the next budget, as proposed, would lead to more job loss in public education and local governments.

Burga praised Kasich for expanding Medicaid.
