Right to Work is wrong because it means a lower standard of living, less ability to save for retirement and poorer outcomes as we age.
I have worked as a newspaper deliverer, complaint taker, highway maintenance worker, social worker, political activist, educator, economic research director, public policy analyst and retiree advocate. I am active in my church locally and half of Ohio. I participate in an interfaith social justice ministry. I am the volunteer president for retiree groups in Ohio.
It limits the ability of working men and women to raise their voice and have it heard in the workplace to bring fair working conditions to all employees. It limits our ability to talk together and share the proceeds of our work in wages and other economic benefits. If all of us produce, all should share and have a say in how to fairly distribute the proceeds. All of us need to share the cost of creating a good place to work with reasonable pay and benefits. For me as a retiree, Right to Work is wrong because it means a lower standard of living, less ability to save for retirement and poorer outcomes as we age.
