AFSCME released a new video Wednesday, "Think Again," summarizing the efforts in Ohio against Gov. John Kasich's anti-collective bargaining law, Senate Bill 5. The bill was repealed with 61 percent of the voters rejecting the Republican assault on public employees. In all, more than two million Ohioans came out to vote against the law.

The video features a series of Ohio public employees sending a clear message not only to Kasich, but to Republicans in other states who are pursuing similar assaults on the 99 percent. Among the workers featured in the video are a sewer cleaner, a corrections officer, a zoo keeper, a bus driver, and a meat inspector.

It's an inspiring video that shows the power of the people when they are organized and have a clear message and when Republicans pursue policies that are unpopular and harmful.
