    Default Ohio treasurer says he supports right-to-work law

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The state's treasurer says he would back making Ohio a right-to-work state to compete with neighboring states that have banned requirements that nonunion employees pay unions for negotiating contracts and other services.
    A group called Ohioans for Workplace Freedom has been circulating petitions for a ballot measure that would keep workers covered by labor contracts from having to join a union or pay dues. Supporters hope the issue appears before voters this fall.

    If you can't do it with public support, then "pay" for it.
    Money always talks.
    Wonder who the big money backers are of this ?

    According to the ad, signature gatherers in South West Ohio would be paid $1.50 per signature and would be working to “place the Ohio’s Workplace Freedom Amendment on the ballot for voters to approve”
    I spoke with Chris Littleton, spokesman for Ohioans for Workplace Freedom, yesterday and he confirmed they are hiring signature gathers. In fact, they’ve had paid gatherers working for weeks now.According to Littleton, “signature gatherers were hired going into the primary election to start efforts with a boost”.
    Ohio “Right to Work” backers find funding, begin hiring signature gatherers

    And this from another perspective:

    And their last claim, that RTW means “more opportunities for everyone,” begs the question: for whom? It clearly doesn’t mean more opportunities for workers. Maybe it means more opportunities for unscrupulous fat cats to make higher profits at workers’ expense by paying them lower salaries.

    Then look at the author of the proposed Constitutional Amendment, Maurice Thompson, who is Executive Director of The 1851 Law Center. That’s the group that tries to repeal school levies, like they recently tried in Westerville for example. The 1851 Law Center also pushed Ohio lawmakers to eliminate Ohio’s estate tax in the last budget, which cost the state millions of dollars, while at the same time cutting funding to Ohio schools and other programs.

    Upon continued examination, you discover Chris Littleton, a spokesperson for “Ohioans for Workplace Freedom,” is also the President of the Cincinnati Tea Party. Another key figure of the “Ohioans for Workplace Freedom” group is Bryan Williams, who happens to be Director of Government Affairs for Central Ohio Associated Building Contractors. This group supports the repeal of Federal prevailing wage laws, which establish guidelines for fair compensation for employees.

    These gentlemen are not criminals or degenerates, but they do represent a far-right political ideology that they and “Ohioans for Workplace Freedom”
