Not voting has consequences

Jul 11, 2018, 08:45 AM

Not voting has consequences, plain and simple.

This was seen with the recent decision on Janus vs. AFSCME, in which the U.S. Supreme Court sided with big businesses and billionaires over working Americans. This is just another example of the importance of voting out extremists and electing those who support public employees and their freedom to a strong union voice on the job.

The rights of Ohio workers have been decimated for decades, and despite rising public support for unions, anti-union, public employee-despising politicians and candidates are on the rise. Add to that nearly half of all registered voters didn't vote in 2016, a 20-year low, and we have a serious recipe for disaster that could continue this trend of decimating middle class and union rights for decades to come.
