The language appeared on the ballot as:[3]

The proposed unemployment compensation law provides for increased weekly benefits, increased dependency allowances, increased duration of benefits, places the burden of proof upon appellants, provides supplemental payments to claimants who claims are delayed by the unreasonable action of employers, and provides that payments to a claimant under a guaranteed period wage plan shall not affect the weekly benefit amount of claimants under the unemployment compensation law of the State of Ohio.
