Is Ohio next on right-to-work battlefront?

Dec 12, 2012 Full story: WKYC-TV 183

As neighboring Michigan became the 24th state Tuesday to enact laws that prohibit agreements requiring workers to join a union or pay dues, Ohio groups that support the laws say the Buckeye State has to follow suit or watch jobs leave.

I live in a right to work state, you don't have any rights or protection under the law. The only right the state gives is employers the right to fire you for any reason or no reason at all. If your over the age of 40 or any health problems you may as well forget about working, they give all the jobs (especially factory work) to illegals or young people preferably under the age of 30.

2500 jobs not including 10,000 halo effect jobs to a town of 3500. How many Ohio towns can we think of with 3500?

A February 2011 study by the Economic Policy Institute found:[16]

Wages in right-to-work states are 3.2% lower than those in non-RTW states, after controlling for a full complement of individual demographic and socioeconomic variables as well as state macroeconomic indicators. Using the average wage in non-RTW states as the base ($22.11), the average full-time, full-year worker in an RTW state makes about $1,500 less annually than a similar worker in a non-RTW state. The study goes on to say "How much of this difference can be attributed to RTW status itself? There is an inherent “endogeneity” problem in any attempt to answer that question, namely that RTW and non-RTW states differ on a wide variety of measures that are also related to compensation, making it difficult to isolate the impact of RTW status."[16]

Economic Policy Institute is owned and operated by the AFL-CIO and exists only to perpetuate union propaganda. It's figures are bogus. The cost of living is lower in non-union states, as are taxes, most notably. In other words, those staes don't have to cover excessive union wages which are always inflated to cover the dues!

Not to diminish a $17 mil settlement but that is next to nothing! Toyota competes with union labor contracts & seems to be doing fine after MORE than 2 decades. So what is the Problem? ACLU, NAACP, AFLCU, NAACP, AFL-CIO, LOCAL 1 THRU 100 ETC?
DELAYED safety reports?
What the heck is the point of this 'battlefront' question?

It all has a very simple solution, stop buy products from outside the county or from companies owned by foreign interests. Make laws now that will not allow foreign groups or individuals to own control of our basics of life. Water, food, shelter, clothing, energy and all other basics should be under the control of our own country, legal citizens. We are going to wake up pretty soon an find ourselves under foreign dominion, without them even having to fight a war to conquer our people.

Likely not so. The U.S. is too large of a market. Most Production would come back on shore after awhile. Unemployment would go away & we would need more immigrants to fill those jobs.That would be a tough transition, but that's what would happen.

I doubt we need illegal immigrants even now. The government says ten million plus or minus are drawing unemployment. Many other think tanks say the ten million or so are indeed drawing unemployment, but many have drawn out their unemployment and are no longer in the count. The think tanks say that the number of people not working is in the range of 30 million.

Interesting that the same think tank says the illegal immigrant problem involves approximately 30 million. All illegal immigration does is draw down the wages in this country, less taxes being paid in (less wages or being paid under the table), more services going out for these people.

That does not include the destruction of the credit and good name of the people who have had their social security and other ID information stolen for them to be in this country. Many children are coming of age an finding out they already have a bad credit history or even a criminal record because some illegal or illegals have been using their name and social security number. If this group of illegals would be sent back home it would improve the job outlook for many Citizens and legal immigrant people almost overnight.

That an buying only things made in America would improve the economy in several different ways. The tax base would get larger, more money per hour means more taxes. Stuff being purchased in country would provide more jobs, more taxes. More money being made by citizens of the country, more spending, more taxes, more money circulation in country. Money not being sent out of the country like Mexico, in that way we would support our own government and way of life. I know this is not realistic, greed will step in by the interests in control and say we want more profit, forget the American citizen, forget America, that is what many greedy (love of money) people, corporations, many in government have done. It will get to the point no one in this country will be able to buy anything. That is why some corporations are going to China, they see us and them as nothing more than markets, that is the problem here they don't see us as a work force they only see us as a market, they look else where for the mental and physical assets to bring a their products to market. Who has encouraged this kind of behavior?

Sadly we have always demanding products be cheaper and cheaper, we have cut our own throats by allowing production to go overseas, by allowing our knowledge base to diminish over time. The only way to correct this is to demand American made products and to get foreign interests out of our country. Many millions have lived without even knowing about a cell phone, anyway we have companies that can and have built those to in the past.

Three questions:

1. Were you born in this country?

2. Is one of or both your parents illegal immigrants?

3. Are you living with / married to a illegal immigrant?

I have found out that many of the posts you are making are being made by those who fit in one or more of these categories. A clear, honest answer would be appreciated.

Like I said earlier the only rights the right to work law really give. Is you the right to leave for no or any reason. The right for your employer to fire you for no or any reason. The employer don't have to give any reason what so ever.

In the state I live in, Kentucky, the state will basically suspend or restrict any laws that would help the employee against the employer. Other words the employee is always guilty until proven innocent (if you get remanded, fired or injured) and usually you have a short time frame to prove it. Medical problems, even if work related will get you fired. Even if you prove the supervisor's girl friends are lying, you will get fired. Even if you prove something your accused of did not or could not have happened, you can be fired.

The employer is always innocent and must be proven guilty (usually in a court of law), you also have a short time frame to prove this. This gives the employee a work life in hell, you have nothing really to say about anything unless for some reason you have wealth or wealthy backing. That is just some of the reasons why unions were established in the first place.
