Good jobs, worker rights, smart training, and opportunity for all.
Ohio needs a budget that invests in everyone. Policy Matters promotes smart revenue and budget policies that ensure Ohio has what it takes to create a thriving state.
Good schools, sound infrastructure and quality health systems lay the foundation for thriving communities. Ohio can pay for these programs with a fair and balanced tax code that works for everyone, not just a powerful few. At Policy Matters Ohio, we know that strong public programs can help create a prosperous Ohio for all.
Investing in our greatest resource – people – builds a prosperous economy. Instead of big tax giveaways to corporations, we document how good schools, roads, and communities lead to a better Ohio.
Our work shows how Ohio can create an economy that works through all by investing in infrastructure, passing smart clean energy policies and supporting workers.
No one working full time should struggle to get by. Workers who get laid off should know their families won't go hungry. We promote good policies so Ohioans have access to good work that pays them fairly.
We know how to create good quality, well-paying jobs in Ohio. Put our state's resources into infrastructure and people through education and training. Encourage unions and fair labor standards to level the playing field for workers. Raise the minimum wage and reform the tax code so all workers can live comfortably.
Ohio deserves a government that represents everyone – not just big moneyed special interests. We're working to ensure our state government is transparent and accessible.
We can’t have an economy that works for everyone if some people are excluded from the decisions our government officials make. Policy Matters stood up to discriminatory voter ID laws. We helped beat back a dangerous sunset law that could have eliminated state agencies without any input from the public.
