09.24.19 - Rep. Stephanie Howse Dismayed At High Court's Decision

 

Rep. Stephanie Howse (D-Cleveland) today released the following statement regarding the Ohio Supreme Court’s controversial split ruling that the state did not overstep its constitutional authority when it sought to block local hiring laws around the state: 

“Invalidating Cleveland's ordinance, known as the Fannie M. Lewis Cleveland Employment Law, reaffirms the injustices that have been occurring in the workplace for generations and does nothing to help promote fair labor practices, equitable pay, and representation in the workplace. I will continue to bring to light the systematic exclusion of groups of citizens to fully participate in the construction industry and have a responsibility to fight for local families’ inclusion in the construction industry so they can live, work and retire with safety and security in Ohio. Our state government has a duty to right the wrongs of the past and if the state is incapable or unwilling to act, the state needs to get out of the way and let local communities take the necessary actions to benefit their local communities.”
