05.17.17 - Galonski: Hits To Workers Prop Up Boss' Handouts In State Workers' Comp Budget


State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) today voted “no” on the Republican-led charge to restrict worker’s access to healthcare and benefits through the state’s Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) budget bill, House Bill 27. The bill passed the House Insurance Committee and the House Finance Committee on a party-line vote Tuesday. 

“Today, Republican lawmakers made it easier for careless employers and big corporations to rig workers’ compensation rules for undocumented employees and force taxpayers to foot the bill if there is a workplace accident,” said Galonski. “Corporations that don’t play by the rules and hire undocumented workers should take responsibility when something goes wrong in the workplace.”
