Why Right to Work is Wrong: In Brief

Why Right to Work is Wrong

Right to Work is a deceptive attack on working and middle class Ohioans

The deceitful slogan “right-to-work” is WRONG. 

Right to Work is an unsafe and unfair attack on working and middle class families. Greedy people who want to hurt our Ohio families and devastate our communities are not welcome in our state. In Ohio, we stand up for one another against the same people who brought us Senate Bill 5 in 2011.

 

Right to Work destroys the American Dream

Right to Work is part of a national attack on the American Dream to have the opportunity to work harder for a better future. If you work hard and play by the rules, you should be treated fairly.

Right to Work is an assault on our Democracy, funded by power-hungry CEOs and rich corporate interests to shut up the middle class so we no longer have the power to speak up for ourselves.

Right to Work is unfair because it insults and degrades the worker. We need to value the hard work and the people who built our state and nation.

 

It's unsafe

Right to Work takes away the professional voices of those we trust to take care of our children and families like teachers, nurses, !re!ghters and police officers.

Workers will be intimidated. Fight for your freedom of speech to point out potential product, equipment, manufacturing and other safety issues like respirators for !re!ghters, sta"ng shortages, food safety inspections.

Workers in Right to Work states are injured and die on the job more often at alarmingly higher rates.

 

It is an attack on workers' RIGHTS

Right to Work strips Ohio workers of their rights and voice in the workplace.

Ohio voters have spoken on this issue: they support fairness in the workplace.

Workers should be able to speak up for themselves, their coworkers and their community on the job.

 

It kills jobs and weakens communities

Right to Work means lower wages, $1,500 less on average in states that attack workers’ rights, and fewer bene!ts for you, me, all of us.

We need good paying jobs for working and middle-class Ohioans.

Communities thrive and grow when Ohioans have good paying jobs. Fewer jobs mean crumbling communities, reduced wages means reduced spending.

 

Right to Work is wrong because it means less money, lower wages and fewer benefits for ythe middle class. Communities thrive and grow when Ohioans have good paying jobs. Let's stand up together and stick together for a decent standard of living. We deserve it.
