Polls shows support for "right-to-work" in Ohio
COLUMBUS, Ohio: A Quinnipiac University Poll has found that 54% of Ohio's registered voters support right-to-work legislation. Right-to-work laws make union membership voluntary rather than a condition of employment. These laws are often seen as weakening the power of labor unions. As such, the findings are surprising in light of Ohio voters' repeal of Senate Bill 5. The poll suggest than Republicans are more likely than Democrats to support right-to-work legislation (77%-31%). In addition, the poll found stronger support among younger voters and college-educated voters. 55% of the state's critical independent voters support right-to-work. Petitioners in Ohio are currently collecting signature on a right-to-work amendment to the Ohio Constitution.
