Right-to-work in Ohio? Proponents of a right-to-work law in Ohio say it's unfair to compel employees to join a union or pay union dues and say the state will be more attractive to businesses if there's workplace choice. Unions say the result of such a law would simply be the right to work for less pay. We'll update you on efforts to force a November vote and invite you to join our conversation on whether right to work will work for Ohio, Wednesday at 9
