State Rep. Adam Miller (D-Columbus) and Democratic House members from across the state today issued statements in support of the Working People’s Day of Action planned for Saturday, February 24 at the Ohio Statehouse. The Ohio march comes on the heels of the introduction of six Republican-sponsored constitutional amendments to implement so-called “right to work” legislation and other workplace restrictions in the Buckeye State. 


“Ohio’s elected officials should be focused on creating jobs, ensuring safer neighborhoods, and improving education. Vilifying the middle class and attacking Ohio’s long, proud relationship with organized labor is more than just a political sideshow, it is detrimental to our state’s economic future.”—Rep. Adam Miller (D-Columbus)


Thousands of people will gather in cities across the nation Saturday at similar rallies to make a stand against anti-worker restrictions ahead of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Feb. 26 hearing of Janus v. AFSCME Council 31 – a case that could put right to work restrictions in place for public sector workers across the nation.
