Ohio Workers Rally to Defend American Dream

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Hundreds, possibly thousands of Ohio workers will join others from around the country on Saturday for rallies they say are meant to defend the American dream. 

On the "Working People's Day of Action," they're calling for equitable pay, affordable health care, quality schools and vibrant communities. Director of Cleveland Jobs with Justice Deb Kline explains the national event is just a couple of days before the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments in Janus v. AFSCME, a case that challenges the right of unions to collect fees from nonmembers.

"The forces behind this case want to basically take away working people's opportunities and rig the system against us,” Kline insists. “So, that's why we are coming together to raise our collective voices, so that people are aware of what's going to be happening."
