Ohio voters Tuesday overturned a law limiting the collective bargaining rights of the state’s public workers.
In a statement, Vice President Joe Biden called the vote a “a gigantic victory for the middle class.”
“By standing with teachers and firefighters and cops, Ohio has sent a loud and clear message that will be heard all across the country: the middle class will no longer be trampled on,” Biden said.
Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, said the vote sends a clear message to the rest of the country.
“Those who would dare try to strip collective bargaining rights away from hard-working citizens will now think twice,” Weingarten said in a statement. “Ohio voters made it clear to them that there is a price to pay for turning your back on the middle class.”
