The article by John Morris was alarming and deceptive (“Unions holding Ohio back” Feb. 29). The reason I say that is because he twists the facts and attempts to discredit the unions or anyone else who stands their ground against right-to-work policies.

Right-to-work regulations actually wrong workers by taking away their right to choose whether to join a union. Federal law already allows workers in a bargaining unit represented by a union to refuse to join the union or pay fees for political purposes.
The Economic Policy Institute estimates that for every $1 million in wage cuts, local economies lose six jobs. Furthermore, right-to-work laws do not improve the unemployment rate, as seven of the 11 states with the highest unemployment rates have right-to-work policies, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Unions are not holding people back
