State Rep. David Leland (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. 

“We all need to be vigilant to make sure that everyone has the equal opportunity to succeed, that we remove any and all artificial barriers to personal achievement and that we make the investments necessary so that all can reach their potential. The American dream is based on a fair shot at a good job, but partisan attacks on working people threaten to undo the very fabric of that dream.” —Rep. David Leland (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.
