state were united last night for the Columbus premier of The Right to Unite
at an OSU campus theatre.
See photos from the event here.
The film follows two home care workers who are struggling to take care of their clients and put food on the table. In its decision called "Harris v. Quinn," the U.S. Supreme Court severely crippled that group's ability to form a union that would help lift them out of poverty and better speak up for those they care for.
In Harris v. Quinn, the court said home health care workers are only quasi-public employees, and therefore not entitled to all the provisions under federal law that allow them bargaining rights. However, a new case, Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, is targeting ALL public sector workers for that exclusion.
Watch The Right to Unite in its entirety, or, even better, hold a screening and share it with your friends and colleagues.
