COLUMBUS – The Ohio Democratic Party today released the following statement from Chairman David Pepper on so-called “right to work” legislation, which will be heard tomorrow in the House Commerce and Labor Committee.
“Republicans in Columbus just can’t help themselves. Last week it was gutting unemployment insurance for those who are struggling, now it’s attacking workers all over the state by pushing so-called ‘right to work’ legislation. Ohio Democrats strongly oppose this ideological attack on Ohio’s working families, which will drive down wages, benefits and overall living standards for all Ohio workers. It’s time for real leadership in Ohio, and it’s time for Kasich to call on GOP leaders to shut down ‘right to work’ for once and for all.”
