Vernuccio on Worker Freedom

Panel discussion in Washington, D.C.

“We’re looking at Ohio. We’re looking at Missouri. We’re looking at Kentucky. The fire of worker freedom is shining brightly, and it is spreading.”

Those were among the comments of Labor Policy Director F. Vincent Vernuccio at a panel discussion on right-to-work Saturday held at CPAC near Washington, D.C., according to Huffington Post.

Vernuccio also said that Ohio Gov. John Kasich is “the biggest impediment” to worker freedom in the Buckeye State, according to Talking Points Memo.

Vernuccio noted that while it took 20 years to achieve right-to-work in Michigan, “It’s not going to be another 10 years” until the next state passes a worker freedom bill, according to Salon.
