Two statistics you need to know

 

Dear Leader,

I can’t emphasize enough how devastating making Ohio a “Right to Work” is Wrong state would be for working people.

Today, I’m going to tell you about two numbers that are truly unbelievable, but unfortunately all too real.

“Right to Work” is Wrong because it will make all of us, union and non-union workers, poor. In RTWIW states, the average household median income is $681 less per month. What would you do right now to reduce your household monthly budget by nearly $700? And that’s every house in your community.

The next number I’m going to talk to you about is even worse if you can believe it, and that is the death rate on the job in “Right to Work  is Wrong states is 49% higher than in free bargaining states like Ohio.

Yes, 49% higher. 

We all want our loved ones, spouses, children, neighbors to go to work and come home safe and sound. In “Right to Work” is Wrong states, the death rate is 49% higher. And that means fewer loved ones are coming home at the end of the shift.

 


There’s a simple reason for this: Workers lose their voice and their freedom and their rights on the job with this deviously named anti-worker idea.

So, let’s keep our incomes rising, ourselves and our loved ones safer, and let’s stand together because “Right to Work” is WRONG for Ohio, wrong for working people and wrong for all of us.

In solidarity,
John Lyall
