Republican Lawmakers Trying Anti-Worker Agenda Again

John Kasich

Governor Kasich wants us to forget about his anti-worker agenda.  He hopes that when he’s up for re-election next year, Ohioans won’t remember Senate Bill 5.

Other Republicans in the Ohio House and Senate are making it hard for him to hide.  Their “right to work” bills in the legislature are like Senate Bill 5, but even worse.

Gov. Kasich and his allies want to pretend “right to work” is not on the agenda, but Republican State Rep. Andrew Brenner has led the charge to push this anti-worker agenda through the General Assembly anyway.

In a recent interview with the Delaware Gazette, Rep. Brenner said: “I’m co-sponsor on three [right-to-work] bills…I don’t think any of them are going anywhere. We were told not to even bring them up, because next year is an election year for the governor. This may come up if he’s re-elected. If he’s not re-elected, it won’t come up because we won’t get it through (Democratic candidate) Ed FitzGerald.”

Republicans know that the rest of Ohio does not support their anti-worker agenda, and they won’t succeed if Ed FitzGerald is governor.
