In response to a scheduled Ohio House committee hearing tomorrow on House Bill 53, legislation to make Ohio a so-called “Right to Work” state for first responders, teachers, nurses and other public employees, Democratic House Finance Committee lead Rep. Jack Cera (D-Bellaire) issued the following statement:


“Right to work is wrong for Ohio because it puts our first responders last for safety gear, fair pay and healthcare protections for on-the-job injuries. States that have so-called “right to work” restrictions have more deaths on the job, lower wages and less healthcare.


“Ohioans shouldn’t be held hostage by an extreme and dangerous political agenda at their Statehouse. Elected officials need to put politics aside and refocus our efforts on reforms that will grow our economy, protect healthcare and give people the tools they need for a better life. Right to work is wrong for working families, wrong for the middle class and wrong for Ohio.”
