Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today (March 2) released the following statement after the Ohio State Senate voted 17-16 to pass S.B. 5, a proposal to end the right of workers to collectively bargain for fair benefits and working conditions.

"In order to understand how devastating this bill is to workers you have to be aware of provisions which take away the right to strike, open the door for replacement workers and set the stage for privatization of services. Wages and benefits will be cut. Inevitably state services will become a target for privatizers. The taxpayers will pay more and get less, while the "˜savings' will end up in the pockets of corporate service-providers in terms of high profits. The passage of this bill is the just the beginning of a scheme to defraud both workers and the taxpayers," said Kucinich.
